That patch was moving in the right direction, but I think there were two 
problems with it. First, the right way to pass a parameter is via a property 
field (as Peter explained). Second, IMO the parameter should be the CPU model 
string to instantiate and not the Pi version number.

Alistair's patch doesn't actually help you as far as I can see, since it 
doesn't change what CPU bcm2836 instantiates. I think it just means that if the 
user specifies a different CPU type they get an error rather than being 
silently ignored.
