I believe the intent is to follow up with more architecture specific
patches to allow each architecture to define the number of bits to use
(min, max, and default) since these values are architecture dependent.
Arm64 patch should be forthcoming, and others after that. With that in
mind, would you still prefer to have the sysctl code in the
arm-specific patch?
