I am a bit confused. I haven't spotted any specific code for this. How did
you handle it?

livepatch: x86, ARM, alternative: Expose FEATURE_LIVEPATCH

AFAICT, this only handles this first part (CPU bit feature) not the errata
#843419. Did I miss anything?

    Need to look in erratum #843419 on some Cortex-A53 and figuring
    out how to avoid payloads having R_AARCH64_ADR_PREL_PG_HI21 relocations.

I will not considered this has a blocker for this series. Having livepatching
on all the other boards for Xen 4.8 would still be awesome :).

So I moved it off to 4.9 list.

Oh, I understood "Addressed the two outstanding concerns" as "It was fixed in the code". Maybe I was expecting too much to shrink down my todo list ^^.
