I wanted to say:
"cpu detection *may* be useful to many applications"
but then I'm no maintainer and I trust your decisions, but I don't
know where such thing should be placed since lavc shouldn't depend on
lsws and I think that lsws doesn't depend on lavc, so I don't know how
they could share it if not in lavu.
Sorry if I'm missing (again) something trivial.
