No, but you can have a different interrupt handler that it set at
runtime if you want to completely eliminate this comparison.

My point is that CONFIG_ARM_LPAE is just too brittle, there is nothing
that prevents you from using a non-LPAE kernel on the Pi 4, even PCIe
could be made to work if using super section mappings to map the PCIe
outbound space. Even on models with over 4GB of DRAM, if you are willing
to lose some of it, it can work.

I am fine with any solution that does not involve keying off
CONFIG_ARM_LPAE to discriminate 2711 from any other chip.
