I've talked to several of the people within AMD, and AMDFAM10 is used in
a lot of places, including the Linux kernel.  Barcelona is the marketing
name that we are now using.  If we can only have one name, I would vote
for amdfam10.  Ideally, I would like to have barcelona as a synonym for
amdfam10, much like you can say -mtune=k8 or -mtune=opteron.
