These changes make it possible to build a normal VTL 0 Hyper-V
not set, which won't work.  While we can say "don't do that", it
would be better if the Kconfig dependencies expressed that

A possible fix is to remove the "depends on HYPERV" from
the "depends on ACPI" be conditional on !HYPERV_VTL_MODE
(for both ARM64 and X86).

I think we originally had "depends on HYPERV" in
HYPERV_VTL_MODE because there was a VTL-related function
in a non-Hyper-V code path, and we wanted to prevent that code
from running in non-Hyper-V environments.  But in practice, that
turned out not to work well because occasionally people would
do an "all config" build where both CONFIG_HYPERV and
CONFIG_HYPERV_VTL_MODE were set, and it would panic during
boot in their non-Hyper-V environment.  Such people were not
happy. :-(  So Saurabh made a relatively simple change (see commit
14058f72cf13e) that got the VTL code out of that non-Hyper-V code
path.  With that change, it shouldn't matter if someone sets
CONFIG_HYPERV_VTL_MODE=y in a build where

At least that's my theory. :-)  Someone would need to check
it carefully.
