How do you mean that exactly?

Do you mean making the feature always-on (not selectable in Kconfig)?
be ok for me, but for PHYS_64BIT should be left up to the platform
to decide if it should be presented to the user or not.

Do you think the other two features, CPU_FTR_BIG_PHYS and 
CPU_FTR_LARGE_BATS should be merged into one bit? They could for now, 
because there is no processor supporting only one of them.
