If some hardware supports just one auth type, we would report just one
of these caps. Although we have the rule that userspace is not allowed
to request these independently in KVM_ARM_VCPU_INIT anyway, I think it
would be easier for userspace if we suppress both caps if either auth
type isn't available on the host. e.g.:

case KVM_ARM_ARM_PTRAUTH_ADDRESS:
case KVM_ARM_ARM_PTRAUTH_GENERIC:
r = has_vhe() && system_supports_address_auth() &&
system_supports_generic_auth();

We could revert back to the above code later on, and apply the ABI
relaxations described in my response to the vcpu features patch, if
someday we add support to KVM for coping with host hardware that
supports just one auth type.


I'd like Mark to comment on this, since he's more aware of the
architectural situation than I am.

Cheers
