At least the 970MP was used in IBM's JS21 blade server which was also a
sPAPR based system, so you might at least want to add that CPU, too.
If I get https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PowerPC_970#PowerPC_970FX right,
the 970FX has only been used in Apple computers, so it's likely not
needed to add support for these FX CPUs.
