I would like to offer to package cpuid:

	dumps CPUID information about the CPU(s)

The program dumps detailed information about the CPU(s) gathered from
the CPUID instruction, and also determines the exact model of CPU(s).

Whereas /proc/cpuinfo is like an abstract of the features important to
Linux in a system, cpuid is a standalone utility which writes a paper
expounding on every feature in each CPU's architecture and what it can
do, at about the one line per bit level.

It is updated and released frequently and appears current with Intel and
AMD info and supports other vendors' chips.

It is available under major Linux and BSD flavours:

See the project home page for more information:

Control files, sources, and binaries are available under the cpuid folder at:

The source needed minor tweaks to build on Cygwin and for packaging as
the main sources are one .c file and a Makefile.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
