Are we sure that A76 behaves the same as A57/A72 when it comes to not
caching any of the EPD* bits in the TLB? Because the 1319367 workaround
has a lot of the A72 microarch implicit to it, and I'm not sure this
works as is on A76 or A55...

The patch itself looks OK, but I'd like some reassurance about the
above.
