That's just as kernel/platform dependent as using /proc/cpuinfo.
Indeed, note this in generic/273:
_supported_os IRIX Linux
It's supposed to work on Irix as well, which means using sysfs is
just as wrong as using /proc/cpuinfo.
sysconf is the prefered platform neutral interface for getting this
sort of information. Something as simple as:
$ getconf _NPROCESSORS_ONLN
or adding a sysconf(_SC_NPROCESSORS_ONLN) call to src/features.c (if
we don't want to rely on systems having getconf installed) would be
much better than manually parsing magic proc or sysfs files.
