* Adding a new com32 module to handle cpu informationsyslinux-3.21-pre1Erwan Velu2006-09-051-0/+127
From : Erwan Velu <erwan.velu@free.fr> This patch a new com32 module to handle cpu information. A new "cpu" structure can be filled by calling "detect_cpu(&cpu)". It provides : - Vendor name as string - Model as string - Vendor as integer - Model as integer - Family as integer - Stepping as Integer - Flags as boolean - SMP as boolean Note that SMP is just a manner to know if the bios annonce an MPTABLE. This code can't detect each processor. I've been adding a demo program called cpuidtest to show how it works. if (cpu.flags.lm == true) printf("This system is x86_64 compatible\n"); This example shows how to test if a system is X86_64 compatible. I hope it's simple enough ;) This code is mainly taken from the Linux Kernel. Greetings for all the guys who wrote it. Testing and feedback are welcome. Signed-off-by:Erwan Velu <erwan.velu@free.fr>
