I found out (after I sent the patch) that the chip id actually contains
more than just the hardware revision. So when testing for hard revision
(hw1.0 vs hw2.0) we need to do:

(chip_id & 0xf00) >> 8

0x2 will be hw2.0 and 0x0 will be hw1.0. This seems to match with the
chip ids my boards have and also you what you have. I'll send a v2,
thanks for the feedback.
