You're right, apologies. I got confused between _FUNC_ and _CODE_.

But if we're going to clean things up, I'd rather we actually do that.
The only time __bp_harden_hyp_vecs_end is used is when computing the
size of the vectors, and that'd better be BP_HARDEN_EL2_SLOTS * 2kB
(which can be statically asserted at compile time).

I don't think we need this. The macros should do the right thing, and
be fixed if they don't.
