CPU Info parsing on linux from /proc/cpuinfo is faulty. It
only checks the first word of the cpuinfo, which means
that on systems where also stuff like cpu MHz exists the
vendor string does not get parsed.
This results in the GenuineIntel MHz cpu identifiers (the
MHz comes from the cpu MHz field).
I posted a patch in the patches section that is both
more efficient (it parses the file once) but also more
correct and complete.
