On a second thought, we need the id_aa64mmfr0_mixed_endian_el0() for
another code path. For a new CPU detected at boot time via
cpuinfo_store_cpu(), where we get the 'filled' cpuinfo_arm64 which
already has the id_aa64mmfr0. So we do:

+
+static void update_mixed_endian_el0_support(struct cpuinfo_arm64 *info)
+{
+ mixed_endian_el0 &= id_aa64mmfr0_mixed_endian_el0(info->reg_id_aa64mmfr0);
+}

So, having a helper to extract the support from the id_aa64mmfr0 makes
it a bit more ordered.

But yes, we could switch to mask/value pair.
