Just to make Robin's point a little clearer, MIDR_EL1.Variant is
IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED, and doesn't describe the ARMv8.x architecture
revision.

For example, on Cortex A57 is contains the major revision number of the
CPU, and is 1 for any r1pY Cortex-A57 (e.g. those on Juno R1).

For better or worse, the architecture provides us no mechanism to
determine the architecture revision.

Thanks,
Mark.
