ITYM bit 3.
On 32-bit, we've assumed that they're unsigned:
/* LPAE implies atomic ldrd/strd instructions */
vmsa = (read_cpuid_ext(CPUID_EXT_MMFR0) & 0xf) >> 0;
if (vmsa >= 5)
elf_hwcap |= HWCAP_LPAE;
sync_prim = ((read_cpuid_ext(CPUID_EXT_ISAR3) >> 8) & 0xf0) |
((read_cpuid_ext(CPUID_EXT_ISAR4) >> 20) & 0x0f);
if (sync_prim >= 0x13)
elf_hwcap &= ~HWCAP_SWP;

according to speedtest.net.
