[PATCH v3 0/2] arm64: introduce run-time detection of aarch32 support

From: Yury Norov
Date: Wed Sep 02 2015 - 11:50:30 EST

This is needed to avoid loading aarch32 binaries if COMPAT is enabled, but
aarch32 is not supported by specific platform.

First patch fixes hidden header dependencies in arch/arm64/include/asm/cpufeature.h.
It's not related to the issue, but helps to avoid build failure that happens
if one applies second patch only.

Second patch adds run-time detection of aarch32 support, and rejects kernel to
load such binaries, if not supported.

Tested on ThunderX.

- first patch message extended with explanation for cpu_feature macro move;
- in second patch, restored pfr0 masking in id_aa64pfr0_aarch32_el0().

- add missing <linux/compiler.h> for the __attribute_const__ on
- move cpu_feature macro under the __ASSEMBLY__ guard.
- check that all CPUs support AArch32, not the current only,
the same way as for endianness support.
