I wouldn't call a whitespace separated list of CPU feature flags a mess...

If this is the way it "has to"/should/"is designed for" to export such
(not that complex) data via sysfs...

I do not have such a strong opinion on the how, this is up to maintainers
to discuss.

I hope it is agreed that this info is worth exporting via sysfs.
So I wait for the "how are CPU feature flags/bugs data" to be exported
via sysfs and I volunteer to pick it up and submit a patch out of it.
