I took a short look at this.
And it is a bit complicated :-(

leon is the odd-one here. For reasons I do not understand
we have a call from head_32.S to leon_smp_cpu_startup:
in trampoline_32.S.

But sun4m and sun4d uses the normal path via start_kernel() etc.

This has the side-effect that sparc_cpu_model is not set
when we call leon_smp_cpu_startup.

I will try to dive into this and see if I on the sparc32 side
can make leon behave like the other platforms, and then
unify some of the smp cpu boot stuff such that we then
can introduce the generalization from your patch.
