Let's not bikeshed this too much. These things aren't used that widely
and mostly they're just used for figuring out the processor generation.
It's exceedingly rare to have something like:

else if (model == INTEL_FAM6_ICELAKE_NNPI)

where what you suggest would matter.

Preserving the ability to google "ice lake nnpi" is pretty important, so
preserving the Intel name makes a lot of sense here when possible.

Do we *HAVE* an Ice Lake network processor?
