This is a bit hard to read without understanding the following patch.

Maybe elaborate a bit with something like

"The following patch will introduce a mechanism to acquire ownership of the FPSIMD/SVE context for performing context management operations. Rather than having to export this [...]"

Nit, bit I think this makes more sense alongside the other flush
functions.

Can you just drop this new declaration in place of the old declaration
for sve_flush_cpu_state()?

Any reason not to do this in kernel_neon_begin() too?

You can lose the comment here, since the call is now self-explanatory.

[...]

Otherwise, looks sensible.
