64 bit CPU info?

I was trying to confirm my cpu information by typing in "grep flags /proc/cpuinfo".
My Cpu is core i5 540M, supposed to be 64 bit I assume since I have 64bit win7 installed.
However, the output is:
flags : fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe pni dtes64 monitor ds_cpl vmx smx est tm2 ssse3 cx16 xtpr pdcm sse4_1 sse4_2 popcnt aes lahf_lm
It does not has "lm" in it, and according to the sayings online, 64 bit cpu should has this flag.
So what exactly is going on here? Is my cpu 64 bit or not? what's wrong with that command?
