There is a sysinfo framework that has a component for Linux to expose
the chip type and model information to OPAL. This RFC is to propose
the making of a Solaris component to expose the same information. The
Linux component also exposes number of processes and memory amount on a
node, however the first instantiation of the Solaris component will not
expose this information because it will be easier to do such with hwloc
(which has not been integrated to provide such info, yet).
