The machine name does not need to match the file name, so you can name
it "e500" and place it in e500plat.c or whatever. Common e500 code won't
show up as a user-visible machine I guess.

I concur that "-M e500plat" feels a bit odd for a user option. And
repeating that name in the description is not particularly helpful. ;)
