"Cpu Cores" identifying the number of cores in a physical package is
present in x86_64 and not there in i386 tree.  

Will following work:

Physical id: Identifying the unique physical package id for LEU
Core id: Identifying the unique core id on that specific physical
Siblings: Identifying the total number LEUs on that physical package.

Siblings is the one that apps have already started using on i386.
