  Subject: [PATCH] arm64: Enable PCI write-combine resources under sysfs


Supplied here are two versions of this one-liner patch:
    [PATCH][AWS-B]       <--  for linux-aws/bionic master (v4.15)
    [PATCH][AWS-{F,G}]   <--  for linux-aws/{focal and groovy} master

I have smoke-tested this on AWS ARM instances.
