yes, it definitely is worth changing!

This is really bugging me a lot... but the 'marketing name (neo1973)'
was decided on way after the internal GTA01 codename was used.

But preferrably we would only use GTA01xxx to refer to a specific
hardware revision, and Neo1973 wen referring to the overall device.
