Can you provide the raw value of the id register or at least bits 22:16?
This print is currently masking off the bits so we don't know what's
there. All we know is that bit 20 is not set because it doesn't fail to
initialize vfp.

I'm not aware of anything. You would know better than I though.

That check assumes a v2. We should update that check to only look for v2
or less (this isn't based on the current patch but can be squashed in).
