Using alternative_if makes the code a bit more streamlined.

Take the opportunity to use the new auto-nop infrastructure to avoid
counting the number of nop in the else part for arch/arm/arm64/entry.S

    This is pretty much a matter of taste, but at least for arm64 this
    allows us to use the auto-nop infrastructure. So the arm32 is more
    to keep inline with arm64.

    Changes in v4:
        - Add Stefano's reviewed-by

    Changes in v3:
        - Fix build on Arm32

    Changes in v2:
        - Correctly use alternative_if{, _not}
