System: NetBSD 4.99.62 NetBSD 4.99.62 (QUICKY (ASUS M2N32 
WS) 2008-05-14 13:20:42) #1: Wed May 14 06:25:08 PDT 2008
Architecture: x86_64
Machine: amd64
Various definitions and data structures related to CPU identification are 
duplicated in 'src/usr.sbin/cpuctl/arch/i386.c'.  The original source of
the duplicate data is 'src/sys/arch/x86/include/cacheinfo.h' and

Not sure if the correct solution, but the current situation leads to a
serious maintenance/synchronization issue.  Already noted in separate PR
is the discrepancy of AMD cache associativity data (which was updated in
the kernel code but not in cpuctl).
