Jeffrey is the only person I know who understands the CPU naming here, so
I've added him in case this needs either renaming or extending to cover
other CPUs. I wouldn't be at all surprised if we need a function call
rather than a bunch of table entries...

That said, the internet claims that KRYO4XX gold is based on Cortex-A76,
and so CSV2 should be set...
