Which doesn't exist anymore for some time.  This code should go away.

Ouch!  This is a bug in Cygwin.  The information is available, it's
just printed only for AMD CPUs for some reason.  I guess it's about the
age of this code snippet...

I just applied a fix for that.

Can you check?  I guess some revamped cygwin code would be accepted
upstream, given time...
