Thanks Corinna. I think I found the file of interest at fhandler_proc.cc.

Whitespace is a bit off. It is a mix of tabs and space:

      if (features1 & (1 << 0))
    print (" fpu");
      if (features1 & (1 << 1))
    print (" vme");

Should I perform a whitespace check-in before things begin? Or can you
knock it out?
