In both changesets, if merged, somebody could conveniently do git show
on either commit quickly see the result intent of the changeset.

Would it make it better if in patch 1/4 I put an hypothetical generic
example?

Something like:

user@host:~$: ls /sys/devices/system/cpu/types
<arch>_<type_a> <arch><type_b>

Thanks and BR,
Ricardo
