ARM ARM is getting updated with the guidelines on how to treat the
feature values for their sign. This series fixes the handling of sign
based on the new update. Also make the capabilities aware of the sign
of the feature to use the appropriate helper for extracting the values.

See Patch2 for more details on the rules.
