Yes, I agree, but that's another patch. I should have probably left the
broken names in there for now, but I already started fixing them so I
included the fixes in the patch anyway.

Using the kconfig variable board name is definately the way to go, but
needs some more code and possibly some changes in board names, e.g.
we should probably drop the "(Fam10h)" suffix from board names for the
mptable, and also maybe drop any generic prefixes such as "ProLiant"
so that the actually useful part of the boardname ends up in the
mptable field.

Anyway, will take a look at that once this patch is merged.
