[Linux-ia64] Itanium 2 flaw detection

Concerning the recent problem announced by Intel on some I2 chips, do anyone
of you have a pointer to a script/C Code/whatever code which could give a
clear answer for the processor on which we are running ?
(I didn't had customer requests up yo now, but I prefer to be early :-)

Would it be also possible to include it in the result of /proc/cpuinfo as
it was done for pentium processor bugs some time ago:

[bruno@morley ~/Download]$ cat /proc/cpuinfo 
fdiv_bug        : no
hlt_bug         : no
f00f_bug        : no
coma_bug        : no

Of course in case of answer for point 1, I could try to propose a patch for 
point 2 (even if I never made kernel patches up to now).

TIA for any feedback,
