Almost works. The problem is that uaccess_ttbr0_{disable,enable}
assembly macros need to be patched for NOPs if we have cap bits
what I can tell, we have only ever had one bit there so doing
something like:

diff --git a/arch/arm64/include/asm/asm-uaccess.h b/arch/arm64/include/asm/asm-uaccess.h
index b3da6c886835..70644cde9e7c 100644
--- a/arch/arm64/include/asm/asm-uaccess.h

+alternative_if_not (ARM64_HAS_PAN | ARM64_WORKAROUND_QCOM_FALKOR_E1003)
__uaccess_ttbr0_disable \tmp1

.macro uaccess_ttbr0_enable, tmp1, tmp2

save_and_disable_irq \tmp2 // avoid preemption
__uaccess_ttbr0_enable \tmp1
restore_irq \tmp2

won't work just like that because it's not a bitmask, just a raw
cap number. So I need to introduce another capability number that
combines the presence of HW_PAN and this errata? Looks like it
would be similar to ARM64_ALT_PAN_NOT_UAO.
