I have seen that article, but didn't trust it as a canonical
source of information here.

If you can confirm that it's right, that would mean that we
don't support LPAE on mach-qcom, as the only SoC with Krait 450
seems to be APQ8084, and mainline Linux doesn't run on that.

The ones we do support are MSM8x60 (Scorpion), MSM8960
(Krait-without-number),and MSM7874 (Krait 400). Do those all
support IDIV but not LPAE?
