Well, sure but it blocks rest of the interesting information too. It seems to me
that the CPU information could be truncated to some sane limit by default and
introduce a command line option for users that really want to see all of it.

We see patches to fix up kernel boot logs, for example, for this all the time
so it seems rather silly to make the same mistake for shiny new code, no?
