I don't want to change previous cpu models and keep it as it is. So I
am fine with updating i386/core_i7 and i386/atom to avoid mixed dec
and hex notations.

Please also remove the comments that describe the model as it will be
hard to maintain this, if there are questions one should read the
spec. So please also add some more details of the specification source
to the patch description, I think it is:

Table B-1. CPUID Signature Values of DisplayFamily_DisplayModel

in SDM Volume 3B.

Use lower case hex values instead.

Add your Signed-off-by please.
