I'm in two minds about it: The ARM ARM is quite clear about the fact
that this is not legal ("In any ARMv8 implementation the values 0001 and
0010 are not permitted."), and DT clearly lied to us in that case.

If we want to consistently handle that case, it should probably be done
in __armv8pmu_probe_pmu, bailing out if the version is our of scope for
the driver.
