Exactly. Stephen should be able to find out about the Qualcomm cores,
and http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.linux.ports.arm.kernel/426289 has
some information about the others:
 * Brahma-B15 supports all three.
 * Dove (PJ4) reports idiv only in thumb mode, which I'm tempted to ignore
   for the kernel, as it supports neither lpae nor idiva.
 * Armada 370/XP (PJ4B) reports support for idiva and idivt, but according to
   that may be a lie.
 * According to the same source, Krait fails to report idiva and idivt,
   but supports both anyway. However, I found reports on the web where
   /proc/cpuinfo correctly contains the flags on the same SoC (APQ8064)
   that was mentioned there, so maybe they were just running an old
