The definition of cpuid I personally use is

#if !defined(__PIC__) || defined(__x86_64__)
     __asm__ __volatile__
     : "=a" (CPUInfo[eax]), "=b" (CPUInfo[ebx])
     , "=c" (CPUInfo[ecx]), "=d" (CPUInfo[edx])
     : "a" (InfoType)
     : "cc"
     __asm__ __volatile__
       "pushl %%ebx \n\t" /* save %ebx */
       "cpuid \n\t"
       "movl %%ebx, %1 \n\t" /* save what cpuid just put in %ebx */
       "popl %%ebx \n\t" /* restore the old %ebx */
     : "=a"(CPUInfo[eax]), "=r"(CPUInfo[ebx])
     , "=c"(CPUInfo[ecx]), "=d"(CPUInfo[edx])
     : "a"(InfoType)
     : "cc"
