    Default Single-Core CPUs reported as 'Unknown'

    I found out, on Systems with Single-Core CPUs information about the processor are not shown (Processor: Unknown (Total Cores: 1). At least for AMD-Athlon 1000MHz, AthlonXP 2200+ and a mobile Intel Celeron 540.

    This is because there is no 'physical id' listed in /proc/cpuinfo, at least for the processors listed above.

    In regard to the corresponding file (pts-functions-system-cpu.php)
    $physical_cpu_ids = read_cpuinfo("physical id");
    $physical_cpu_count = count(array_unique($physical_cpu_ids));
    if($physical_cpu_count == 1)
        //just one processor
        $info = append_processor_fr...
    will allways fail and $info stays empty and it will be reported 'Unknown'.
    A simple code change corrects this:

    if($physical_cpu_count == 1 || empty($physical_cpu_count))
    not sure if this is the desired code quality , but i hope it helps in some way. At least on my systems with CPUs not reporting an physical id it works.
