Is MDCR_EL2 somehow relevant to pointer auth?

It's not entirely clear why this patch is here.

If this is a cleanup to align the handling of this register with
how HCR_EL2 is handled, it would be good to explain that in the commit
message.

ARMv8-A says MDCR_EL2 is a 64-bit register.

Bits [63:20] are currently RES0, so this is probably not a big deal.
But it would be better to make this 64-bit to prevent future accidents.
It may be better to make that change in a separate patch.

This is probably non-urgent, since this is clearly not causing problems
for anyone today.
