The same person at Intel provides the string to the PAL team for the
PAL_BRAND_INFO call as gets used in the manuals.  So the goal is that
they should be the same.  But the reaction time of print-media and
PAL releases is different, so when branding changes happen, the strings
may get out of sync.  That's apparently the case here: print manuals
will include the 9xxx processor model number, but current PAL doesn't
have that.
