Another useful ls-tool

Playing around with my current installations of EasyLFS I found another ls-tool.
I guess all of you know those useful tools lspci and lsusb, and maybe also lspcmcia. Pressing ls yesterday revealed lscpu, which is part of the new util-linux-ng-package (2.15). That package is that new that not even Fedora has it yet. The only distro which I found it in was OpenSuse.

Well, lscpu is quite a nice little tool. I quickly compiled it on my system and here's what it says:

Architecture:          x86_64
CPU(s):                2
Thread(s) per core:    1
Core(s) per socket:    2
CPU socket(s):         1
NUMA node(s):          1
Vendor ID:             AuthenticAMD
CPU family:            15
Model:                 107
Stepping:              1
CPU MHz:               1000.000
Virtualization:        AMD-V
L1d cache:             64K
L1i cache:             64K
L2 cache:              512K

Of course you can get all this information from other places, but I think it's nice to have a little tool for this.
It can also detect when running in a VM. In my EasyLFS-VM it clearly told me that I use KVM as hypervisor. Now that's nice.
