Ah sorry. My workflow isn't well prepared for that and I already had committed
something to my private branch...

Well, you can as well reject my patch (it is just a proposal) and take yours
as a replacement. Especially as you better understand all the potential values
for .family and .machine than me.

Should be less work for both of us.

Ah, ok. I wasn't aware that there are some AM37 and DM37 chips with and
some without OMAP3 prefix.
