Nit: would it be consistent with the uses we already have for the word
"strict" to use that word here?  i.e.,
ARM64_CPUCAP_STRICT_BOOT_CPU_FEATURE.
Or do you think that would be more confusing?


Otherwise, "critical" sounds a bit like we depend on the capability
being available.

If "strict" doesn't fit though and no other option suggests itself,
it's probably not worth changing this.

Shouldn't the #ifdef...#endif be outside the { ... },?

Otherwise this yields an empty block that will truncate the list in the
CONFIG_ARM64_VHE case...


Removal of this block for !CONFIG_ARM64_VHE is a change rather than just
refactoring, so the commit message should explain it.
