It depends on whether you'd want to use SW PAN together with these CPUs.
From a defconfig + single Image perspective, SW PAN is disabled but it
would be nice to allow single Image with both E1003 and SW PAN configs
enabled (though SW PAN wouldn't be used at run-time).

As a quick hack, something like below but we may want to add a separate
cap bit as a minor optimisation (not sure it makes a difference).

It will probably be more intrusive and would also make SW PAN a lot
slower. I don't think it's worth it.
