In terms of disallowing 64-bit convention to be probed on a 32-bit kernel:

Reviewed-By: Elliot Berman <quic_eberman@xxxxxxxxxxx>

I first thought moving the check to __scm_smc_call() would be better but
then I realized we would be adding an extra runtime check for each SCM call
that either always passes or always fails. I think the current #if is best
as-is, although it would be good to add some comments explaining why as
Bjorn mentioned.
