Yes, partly.  StrongARM RiscPCs have always had a bit of an identity
crisis; the core advertises itself as ARMv4, and does implement that
architecture, but the memory system won't cope with halfword accesses so
those instructions are unusable.  Effectively, it's reduced to an ARMv3M
kind of level.  The kernel used to have some hack to fudge the visible
architecture value in this situation, but it might have gotten lost.
