cmd/dist: log CPU model when testing

Knowing whether test failures are correlated with specific CPU models on
has proven useful on several issues. Log it for prior to testing so it
is always available.

internal/sysinfo provides the CPU model, but it is not available in the
bootstrap toolchain, so we can't access this unconditionally in
cmd/dist. Instead use a build-tagged file, as the final version of
cmd/dist will use the final toolchain.

The addition of new data to the beginning of cmd/dist output will break
x/build/cmd/coordinator's banner parsing, leaving extra lines in the log
output, though information will not be lost. fixes up the coordinator and should be
submitted and deployed before this CL is submitted.

For #46272.
For #49209.
For #50146.
