Well regarding your /proc/cpuinfo format, I think we could fix this
problem by just making sure that the very first line of the cpuinfo
holds the port name.

Something like:

/proc/cpuinfo:
port : {i386,alpha,sparc,ppc,mips}
And then, if people want to parse any of the extra information, they
should know the architecture specific information on the CPU before
attempting to parse it.
