We don't implement a Cortex-A7 in QEMU, because we have no board
models that need it.

Typically guest code doesn't care about the exact CPU type between
the A15 and the A7. If you wanted to add A7 support then starting
with the A15 would be a good start.

You need to look at the Technical Reference Manual for the two CPUs
to determine the difference. As far as QEMU is concerned the things
to look at are:
 * ID register values
 * supported CPU features
 * any implementation-specific coprocessor registers

...in other words, all the things we set in the
