Not really... we print out other information that is duplicated N times,
because it is the common case that N-way systems have matched processors
with matched capabilities. The above caught my eye as well, but the
alternative is to subvert the standard /proc/cpuinfo format and print
something out only once, that clearly applies to each processor.
