What I envisaged is that you move the real definitions outside the
#ifdef so that they're defined unconditionally, and get rid of the
dummies.

Having a dummy definition of sve_user_enable() really feels like it's
papering over something. How could it be appropriate to call this in a
non-SVE enabled system? You _do_ guard the call to this already, so
hiding the real function body for CONFIG_ARM64_SVE=n doesn't appear to
achieve anything. Maybe I missed something somewhere.

A dummy sve_user_disable() is a bit more reasonable though, but we want
this to be a nop on non-SVE hardware even if CONFIG_ARM64_SVE=y.

What about moving the system_supports_sve() check inside
sve_user_disable()?

Fair enough. I had been unsure on this point.

If you want to put a BUILD_BUG_ON(!IS_ENABLED(CONFIG_ARM64_SVE)) in
sve_user_enable() and build with CONFIG_ARM64_SVE=n to check it works,
then I'd be fine with that.

This doesn't capture the runtime part of the condition, but it's better
than nothing.

I meant Ack to the deletion. It looks like the blank line was
spuriously introduced in the first place. But it doesn't hugely matter
either way.
