Specifically what information can you rely on in that info will be a
reliably indication that your particular Centrino branded cpu is 64bit
capable? is there a particular flag that marks it as 64bit capable or
do you have to know something about the specific cpuid?
"lm" is the flag; if it is there, your CPU supports "long mode" aka
I guess you could be more specific (in case somebody made a flag or
another cpuinfo line with "lm" in it) with a:
grep '^\<flags\>.*\<lm\>' /proc/cpuinfo
