If Hygon processors are currently the same as AMD, I don't see the point
in creating a new file just for them. Likewise for example in patch 6

+ case X86_VENDOR_HYGON:
+ ideal_nops = p6_nops;
+ return;
case X86_VENDOR_AMD:
if (boot_cpu_data.x86 > 0xf) {
ideal_nops = p6_nops;

Should only need to add "case X86_VENDOR_HYGON:". Or you could even
reuse X86_VENDOR_AMD.
