/dev/cpu nodes screwed up again.

We already went through fixing this for FC3, now we have a new variant of this
(22:25:48:root@nwo:~)# ll /dev/cpu*
crw-rw---- 1 root root 203, 0 Jun 20 04:07 /dev/cpu0
crw-rw---- 1 root root 203, 1 Jun 20 04:07 /dev/cpu1
crw-rw---- 1 root root 203, 2 Jun 20 04:07 /dev/cpu2
crw-rw---- 1 root root 203, 3 Jun 20 04:07 /dev/cpu3
These should be /dev/cpu/N/cpuid
where N is 0 -> 3
Likewise, there should be msr nodes in /dev/cpu/N/
For some reason, I have no /dev/cpu dir at all.
Why does this keep breaking ?
fwiw, rawhide now has this braindamage too. Though a slightly different variant.
It now has symlinks from /dev/cpuN to /dev/cpu/N/cpu
Those symlinks are unnecessary. /dev/cpu/N/cpuid should be the only nodes that
rawhide now seems fixed, fc4 still borken.
actually, I take that back.
Rawhide has /dev/cpu/0/cpu which should be /dev/cpu/0/cpuid
FC4 still has the useless /dev/cpuN symlinks, and similar 'cpu' instead of
This breaks x86info, and any other package relying on these nodes being in the
