Agreed, because that's essentially what I was suggesting. :-)
The difference was that I was suggesting 'AARCH64_ + $org_name', to
follow the scheme of all other GDB-invented Aarch64-related macro symbols.
AARCH64_HWCAP_APIA seems more clearly to me a gdb-replacement name,
than HWCAP_ARM64_APIA. I could totally see someone confusing the latter
for a real kernel-defined name, since it follows the scheme of
other ports. But that's obviously a minor thing.
