It's different on different ports. On i386 it reports the CPU model
because that's the only sensible thing to do. It usually cannot
determince whether it's a Compaq Deskpro or an IBM Netfinity Server.
On the other architectures I've tested it reports the computer model,
with the CPU model in parantheses:
IBM WorkPad z50 2601 1AU (NEC VR4121 rev0.0 131.072MHz)
HP 9000/400 (50MHz MC68030 CPU+MMU, 50Mhz MC68882 FPU, 32k physical-address cache)
