True, I was pre-fetching ARM using the new EFI "Special Purpose"
memory attribute. However, until that becomes something that platforms
deploy in practice I'm ok with not solving that problem for now.

Sure, let's go with the default stub for non-x86.

Justin, do you think it would make sense to fold your dax_kmem
enabling for arm64 series into my enabling of dax_hmem for all
memory-hotplug archs?
