RFE: Rebase x86info to latest version
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:31:19 EST
The x86info package in the RHEL5 is very very old. It cannot recognize a lot of new important features, such as L3-cache, ssse3, sse4_1, sse4_2, vmx.
The package do not provide a library nor an API, so the rebasement would no break the ABI compliant.
Please rebase that package to the latest version.
