    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.
