Subject[PATCH v3 0/1] arm64/cpufeature: Support optionally disable MTE
Date
From: Yee Lee <yee.lee@mediatek.com>

For some case of low-end devices with limited resources,
an option to disable MTE support is necessary.

This patch supoorts to override id-reg on the
shadow capability via comandline and suppress MTE feature.

=== Test ===
QEMU5.2 + MTE
passed "arm64.nomte" in cmdline
boot log:
..(skip)
[ 0.000000] CPU features: SYS_ID_AA64PFR1_EL1[11:8]: forced to 0

Changed since v3:
- Add documentation text

Changed since v2:
- Use id-reg override machanism to suppress feature.
