Subject[PATCH v3 10/22] arm64: capabilities: Allow features based on local CPU scope
Date
So far we have treated the feature capabilities as system wide
and this doesn't help with features that could be detected on
one or more CPUs (e.g, KPTI, Software prefetch). This patch
splits the feature detection to two phases :

1) Local CPU features are checked on all boot time active CPUs.
2) System wide features are checked only once after all CPUs are
active.
