An attempt was made to add the upstream commit for arm64 HAVE_ARCH_KGDB twice.

The 1st addition misplaced it at the end of the list, and the 2nd addition placed it correctly.

 however, upon merging, the 2nd instance got transformed incorrectly from an addition into a relocation from the incorrect spot to the correct spot, making a patch that looked nonsensical when compared to what it claimed to do in its own commit log.

I have fixed all of this in the kenel-cache as can be seen here:

However, in the fast forward tree, that leaves all branches that use standard/base (but not arm64 feature) with only the 1st of the two commits, and hence still having the mislocation.

While the mislocation is largely cosmetic, it will be a nuisance as we deploy automated comparisons of the ff tree with the "from-scratch" newly generated tree.

The attached commit against standard/base can be applied to that branch in the ff tree and merged out to all containing BSPs in order to help reduce the noise and false positives seen while running the auto comparisons.
