I might have missed the original goal but I can't see why it should be
hard to detect NatFeat aware emulator. Originally ARAnyM tried to
emulate Falcon040 closely to not scare Linux by unknown architecture but
now when Linux contains specific support for NatFeats why don't we just
extend the /proc/hardware with something like this:

# cat /proc/hardware
Model:          ARAnyM           <--- output of <NF_NAME>
System Memory:  800768K
         14 MB at 0x00000000 (ST-RAM)
        768 MB at 0x01000000 (alternate RAM)
Detected hardware:
	Native Features          <---- new hardware
        Falcon Shifter
        Programmable Sound Generator
        PCM 8 Bit Sound
        CODEC Sound
        SCSI Controller NCR5380 (Falcon style)
        IDE Interface
        8/16 Mhz Switch for FDC
        Multi Function Peripheral MFP 68901
        Serial Communications Controller SCC 8530
        Paddle Interface
        Clock Chip MC146818A
        DSP56001 processor
