mach
This is a variant of the architecture, short for machine. It is essentially the same as BFD's use of mach.

CPU family
A group of related mach's. Simulator support is organized along "CPU family" lines to keep related mach's together under one roof to simplify things. The organization is semi-arbitrary and is up to the programmer.
