The dmesg at boot time no longer gives out the name of the cpu, there is only a 
"class", the clock frequency and an id

Old, i.e. NetBSD 4.0

cpu0: AMD Athlon 64 X2 (686-class), 2010.39 MHz, id 0x20fb1


cpu0 at mainbus0 apid 0: AMD 686-class, 2010MHz, id 0x20fb1

I know the cpu messages were cut down and indeed all the cache flavour
information is really not that useful at boot time, but the name of the
processor is.

Boot NetBSD 4.99.68 GENERIC on Athlon X2

Restore part of the behaviour of previous versions
