Should I add code on Opteron sytems to print the number of DIMM's
attached to each CPU? Or the amount of memory on each CPU? Or maybe the
color of the CPU fans?
How far do we take it to avoid having to remove the case to know what the
HW inside is?
Why is it we don't print out the cache configuration unless it is a
verbose boot? I would find that information quite useful also so I
wouldn't have to look up CPU model names, etc..
