[CALUG] New cpu values in /proc/stat?

Previous version of Linux had four cpu values in /proc/stat, user, 
nice, system and idle. Now I'm seeing either seven or eight values. 
Common sense would suggest that the first four values are the same as 
before but common sense hasn't always been reliable with programmers. 
And, kernel_stat.h doesn't show the fourth value as idle yet that 
seems to be what it is from looking at the numbers. Anyone know what 
these values are or how to find out?
