Disk2vhd turns 2, v2.0 that is, and a few more Sysinternals utility updates

Sysinternals Site Discussion - Updates: Coreinfo v3.21, Disk2vhd v2.0, LiveKd v5.31

Coreinfo v3.21: CoreInfo is a command-line tool for reporting processor topology, NUMA performance, and processor features. The v3.21 release adds microcode reporting.
