Sorry, N/A
I installed 5.0_RC1/i386 into a i386 board. And here is the dmesg:
(copied by hand)

| NetBSD 5.0_RC1 ...
|         isaki@...
| total memory = 119 MB
| avail memory = 113 MB
| timecounter: Timecounters ticks every 10.000 msec
| timecounter: Timecounter "i8254" frequency 1193182 Hz quality 100
|     ( )
| mainbus0 (root)
|  :

I know that this strange "    ( )" line should display
vendor or brand name or something.  However, who display it?
and what keyword do I grep in this situation?
At least, some prefix string (like "timecounter: ") is more
preferable, I think.

There are two problem:
 1) I don't know who display it.
 2) on this board, it displays "no data"(?),
   but it's another problem, don't mind it now.

Install NetBSD-5 and see dmesg.

sys/arch/x86/x86/platform.c::platform_print() ?
