No I agree it would be non-trivial to maintain this information in a
single file.  Nor does it solve my problem completely based on the
context you give below, so it's not worth spending time on.

Thank you for the context.  Somehow I was expecting information for all
configured processors (as opposed to only online ones) to be available
at boot time inside sysfs, but clearly that is not going to happen.  Let
me see if I can think of a way to use this information in glibc.
