Lars,

This patch was requested by our DSP/Codec group to help with selecting the best 
user-space codecs at runtime. Simply reading /proc/cpuinfo was insufficient. I 
posted this patch more for feedback and interest with minimal expectations that 
it would make it upstream. This patch will always be in our supported branches, 
but I will defer to everyone else on its worth for upstream.

How do they actually make their choices? Is it just about advertising dsp vs. dspr2 to user-space?

Have you looked into modifying the ELF platform via set_elf_platform() to help these binaries with identify the underlying platform/kernel?
