There was some discussion on ARM64 /proc/cpuinfo recently[1]. Even ARM
doesn't have this. IMO we might want to present complete MPIDR in future
if really needed.

Not sure, why we need this "physical id" field as these cpuid topology
is already visible via sysfs explicitly(we really don't need that again
elsewhere ?)
