What about the Cortex-R7? When I google "ARM ISAR0" the first hit is

and in there it just says 1.

It's set to 1 in some of our earlier Krait CPU designs, but we corrected
it later on to say 2 because the hardware actually supports the
instructions in both ARM and Thumb mode. Unfortunately, we mass produced
some of these chips that say 1 so we still need to do the same kind of
MIDR check. I'm going to send the patchset right now with all this in it.
