I didn't want to put any ACPI code in amba-pl011.c, so putting it in
spcr.c made the most sense. I agree the global variable is ugly. If
you have a better idea, I'm all ears.

If it's any consolation, this erratum affects only 1.x silicon, which is
technically pre-production (although a lot of people have them). This
work-around will eventually be reverted.

I did raise this as a concern in the previous version of the patch. I
also think it should not be a selectable option.

Keeping the "select" does force SPCR to be enabled on ARM64 ACPI
platforms, but if it's an option for x86, it should be an option for ARM.
