I was trying to see if I could get this Indigo2 to display that it is an
Indigo2 under /proc/cpuinfo [instead of current behavior, which assumes
all SGI's are indy's].
I thought that maybe I could get the PROM to tell me this info, using code
struct linux_sysid *mree;
printk("Vendor: %s Prod: %s\n",mree->vend,mree->prod);
the vendor is returned as SGI, but the "prod" just returns the serial
number [which seems to be just the last few octets of the MAC address of
the ethernet card].
Is it possible to figure out what system type it is from this info? Is
there another way to find out sgi system type? Or is this just not
