during OpenWRT boot, the SoC is identified by reading out a 
configuration register. It will say something like
[    0.000000] Linux version 5.10.127 (birger at MintDesktop) 
(mips-openwrt-linux-musl-gcc (OpenWrt GCC 11.3.0 r18457+1542-4b587f2561) 
11.3.0, GNU ld (GNU Binutils) 2.37) #0 SMP Tue Jul 12 19:01:38 2022
[    0.000000] RTL838X model is 8380XXXX (4 first hex digits give model ID)
[    0.000000] SoC Type: RTL8380
That should always be correct, unless there is something we are missing.
