Right, I need to make that just a pr_debug() message and then check in
the annotation code when that is needed to see if it is set, if not,
then show a popup error message and refuse to do whatever annotation
feature requires that.

Anyway, your patch should make sense and provide info that the ARM64
annotation may use now or in the future.
