[alpha] legacy and generic package descriptions

Well, I still don't entirely know what the -legacy package is for nor what constitutes an "Alpha Legacy Machine". Looking at the linux-2.6 Debian changelog it appears it may be something to do with MILO.

Yes, same problem here.

Please provide a (non-exhaustive) list of model and/or system types that are supported by each particular package. For example, I have an "Alpha EV67" with system type and variation reported as "Tsunami" and "Monet" by /proc/cpuinfo. However, I still don't have any clue if I have to install the -generic or the -legacy kernel.
