What would describe the special sause that warranted a new SOC? If this
thing is marketed as 'Network Processor' then I suppose we can actually
use it, esp. if we're going to see this more, like the MID thing -- that
lived for a while over multiple uarchs.

Note that for the big cores we added the NNPI thing, which was for
Neural Network Processing something.
