Why I like having boot log, I don't like have too verbose boot logs. If
you add this, you have a good reason (I hope), but I can't know
it. There's no patch description. So, please give a patch with proper
explanation of why you need that. Anyway, having a proper patch
description is imho always a good idea.

Moreover, there's already good hint if you want to know if you're on to2
or to3. On rev < 3.0, you have this in logs:
VFP support v0.3: implementor 41 architecture 3 part 30 variant c rev 2
Turning off NEON support, detected broken NEON implementation
