[PATCH 2/2] arm64: Expose PARange via ID_AA64MMFR0_EL1 and VARange via ID_AA64MMFR2_EL1

ARMv8.2 architecture hardware extensions can support
upto 52-bit physical addresses (ARMv8.2-LPA) and 52-bit virtual
addresses (ARMv8.2-LVA).

User-space utilities like 'makedumpfile' can try and use the getauxval()
function to retrieve the underlying PARange and VARange values
supported.

An example implementation can be via the 'Appendix I: Example' shown
in 'Documentation/arm64/cpu-feature-registers.txt'. A reference
'makedumpfile' implementation which uses a similar approach is
available in [0].

So, we expose these properties via 'FTR_NONSTRICT' and 'FTR_VISIBLE'
settings for 'ID_AA64MMFR0_PARANGE_SHIFT' and 'ID_AA64MMFR2_LVA_SHIFT'.
