The result of our investigation also supports your suggestion.
We surely agree with you that your proposed method (never set NFDx=1 on A64FX)
is the best to resolve this erratum.

For this erratum, James's patch should be merged to mainline
instead of my previous patches (v1 to v4).
Since KPTI fully covers the effect of NFD1 for A64FX, KPTI is
recommended to be used in conjunction with James’s patch.

I have already tested James's patch on A64FX, and the result is no problem at all.

I think it is better to add a notice here as follows:

Recommend to enable KPTI (UNMAP_KERNEL_AT_EL0 = y).

Thanks a lot.
