Oh right good one.
It's probably better to use an invariant file rather than
messing with sed and GHz and possible other variant parts.

How about /proc/version

Well, /proc/cpuinfo is a multi-line file while /proc/version
is not. Maybe it's better to use another multi-line one which
does not change too often - like /proc/filesystems ?

Thanks & have a nice day,
