[libvirt-users] 'virsh capabilities' on Debian Wheezy-amd64 reports different cpu to Wheezy-i386 (on same hardware)



Hi

On a range of Dell servers containing Intel 64bit processors, 'virsh capabilities' reports the cpu differently on Debian Wheezy-amd64 and Wheezy-i386. The results given by the Wheezy-i386 version seem very wrong (since n270 is an Atom processor). Apart from architecture, the package versions of libvirt-bin are identical: 1.2.1-1~bpo70+1. /usr/share/libvirt/cpu_map.xml files are identical. Is this a known issue? Details for one server are:
