I guess the easiest would be to modify the common show_cpuinfo function
to fall back to just printing the model, if there is no specific function:

--- a/arch/powerpc/kernel/setup-common.c
+++ b/arch/powerpc/kernel/setup-common.c
@@ -175,6 +175,12 @@ static int show_cpuinfo(struct seq_file *m, void *v)
 			seq_printf(m, "platform\t: %s\n", ppc_md.name);
 		if (ppc_md.show_cpuinfo != NULL)
+		else {
+			struct device_node *root = of_find_node_by_path("/");
+			const char *model = of_get_property(root, "model", NULL);
+			seq_printf(m, "machine\t\t: %s\n", model);
+			of_node_put(root);
+		}
 		return 0;

With that in place, we can probably get rid of half the platform
specific show_cpuinfo functions.
