0-day pointed out the latter, which is already fixed in the git tree
ready for the next resend. Not the former though.

I can export it. It does make me ponder for a second whether I should
have gone with my first instinct just to make it another cpufeature
flag like the others. But no, the excuse for doing that for the others
was that it *needs* to be one for using alternatives. And this flag
*isn't* used for alternatives, so it seems a little (more) wrong.
