The following patches update cpuinfo to print SoC
model name for ARM.
The first patch exactly makes needed changes for ARM
architecture and adds a common approach to show SoC name.
Second patch uses this approach for OMAP4 SoCs (as live

Looks like there were few attempts to do similar
changes to cpuinfo without any luck (had stuck
on review) so this functionality is still not
in the kernel yet.
In this patch series the update to cpuinfo is very
short (10 lines) and easy.

Comments are welcome as usual

Addressed comments from Russel (changed 'CPU name' > 'SoC name')
