I have a question about the changes in platform.m4.

I was a bit surprised to see that VAR_CPU_ARCH is set to "aarch64" and 
not "arm". The meaning of the CPU_ARCH variable is supposed to cover 
platforms with similar architecture, regardless of address size. But 
maybe I'm just too unfamiliar with aarch64, and it is not a trivial 
64-bit extension of arm, but more like a separate platform?
