True. The original patch is from 2017 and the relevant part of
arm64/lib/Makefile no longer exists. I'll update this accordingly.

In a later patch x18 is only reserved with SCS. I'm fine with dropping
that patch and reserving it always, but wouldn't mind hearing thoughts
from the maintainers about this first.
