Subject[RFC v5 56/57] arm64: entry: Avoid empty alternatives entries
Date
kernel_ventry will create alternative entries to potentially replace
0 instructions with 0 instructions for EL1 vectors. While this does not
cause an issue, it pointlessly takes up some bytes in the alternatives
section.

Do not generate such entries.
