arm64: mm: Allow forcing all userspace addresses to 52-bit
On arm64 52-bit VAs are provided to userspace when a hint is supplied to mmap. This helps maintain compatibility with software that expects at most 48-bit VAs to be returned. In order to help identify software that has 48-bit VA assumptions, this patch allows one to compile a kernel where 52-bit VAs are returned by default on HW that supports it. This feature is intended to be for development systems only.

+ help
+ For systems with 52-bit userspace VAs enabled, the kernel will attempt
+ to maintain compatibility with older software by providing 48-bit VAs
+ unless a hint is supplied to mmap.
+
+ This configuration option disables the 48-bit compatibility logic, and
+ forces all userspace addresses to be 52-bit on HW that supports it. One
+ should only enable this configuration option for stress testing userspace
+ memory management code. If unsure say N here.
