Just now I had a terminal window with SSH to the phone.

I got the following list. And I recognised /proc, having been in an 
error message from a previous attempt to use lscpu.
Whereas I hadn't intuitively tweaked that /proc was wherein lay info 
about the CPU, which was what I had been looking for!

rootfs on / type rootfs (rw)
/dev/root on / type jffs2 (rw)
proc on /proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on /sys type sysfs (rw)
udev on /dev type tmpfs (rw)
devpts on /dev/pts type devpts (rw)
shmfs on /dev/shm type tmpfs (rw)
volatile on /var/volatile type tmpfs (rw)

Yes, as above, I had by retracing an lscpu error message found the 
cpuinfo file in /proc. So I had by reading that file, found the info 
that I was after.

What I had been hoping for, was some general-purpose method of getting 
my PC's command line programs to peer within the phone.
     Commandline-program-ABC -> info about the PC
     Commandline-program-ABC blah-phone -> info about the phone
