product naming only became less confusing long after the code was

So setting MACH_NEO1973 for GTA02 is correct in this context.

Whether we want to do a great purge that eliminates the Neo1973 name
and maybe the MACH_NEO1973 option entirely (*) is another question.

Personally, I find this kind of massive code change very scary, but

Great Renaming feels a bit less evil ...

Andy, what do you think about this ? We would basically have to merge
all our branches into one before for such a major renaming, and then
stop all other kernel changes for a few days until the smoke settles.
