There are several CPU class subdirectories, and they are:

  i386, i486, i586, i686

There are also extra CPU capabilities flags, which are subdirectories
aswell, and they are defined in glibc as:

static const char x86_cap_flags[][7] =
    "fpu", "vme", "de", "pse", "tsc", "msr", "pae", "mce",
    "cx8", "apic", "10", "sep", "mtrr", "pge", "mca", "cmov",
    "pat", "pse36", "psn", "19", "20", "21", "22", "mmx",
    "osfxsr", "xmm", "26", "27", "28", "29", "30", "amd3d"

These coincide with some compiler flags. You can see "amd3d" and "mmx" are
easily identified. I do not know what the rest are. SO you could do
something like:




Have at it :)
