+ Using the ICC system registers for IRQ masking makes it possible
+ to simulate NMI on ARM64 systems. This allows several interesting
+ features (especially debug features) to be used on these systems.
+ Say Y here to implement IRQ masking using ICC system
+ registers when the GIC System Registers are available. The changes
+ are applied dynamically using the alternatives system so it is safe
+ to enable this option on systems with older interrupt controllers.
