Add a config option to enable VGIC Errata Code in Xen. Platforms which do not
have this errta can compile out this feature.

I would much prefer to see the memu "ARM errata workaround via..." renamed to "Errata Workarounds". So we have only one menu with all workarounds.
I am not sure it would work as
menu "ARM errata workaround via the alternative framework"
        depends on HAS_ALTERNATIVE

which may not be correct for vGIC errata.

+       bool "Handler code for emulation of Group0/1 vGIC registers for VGC Errata"

The title does not help the user to know when to select this option or not.

It looks like to me you want to do something similar to commit 690a341577f9 "arm64: Add workaround for Cavium Thunder erratum 30115" in Linux where the config is called CAVIUM_ERRATA_30115 and a proper description explaining the platform affected.

+       depends on ARM_64

I think this should depend on HAS_GICV3.
