I think this would have to actually be "Family 10h", as Opteron's also
report the same cpuid.  See page 5 of:

If you're ok with that I'll check in the change.

Hmmm, when all this was still in-kernel we were able to differentiate (or at least, unambiguously identify my quad-core Phenom).

Here's the dmesg output from previous 4.99.60 kernel:

 cpu0 at mainbus0 apid 0: (boot processor)
 cpu0: AMD Phenom(tm) 9600 Quad-Core Processor, 2310.80 MHz

So it seems to me we lost something when moving this all to userland.

I guess we should also pick-up and fix errata 298 if necessary.
Although that is more complex as I believe the registers have to be
updated on every core.

Not sure what errata 298 is - guess I'll have to research that.
