This patch is just to float my idea as to how I plan to implement this
project. It is open to any suggestions, ideas or queries from others
in the community.

Yes. Andrew and I have discussed that the hwloc method of
detection(reading the sysfs interface) for native linux is wrong and I
plan to reimplement it using  DMI and ACPI tables data.
