Right now the code uses a global struct to store vendor-ids
and another global variable to store the vendor-patch-function.

There exist specific cases where we'll need to patch the kernel
at an even earlier stage, where trying to write to a static
variable might actually result in hangs.

Also collecting the vendor-information consists of 3 sbi-ecalls
(or csr-reads) which is pretty negligible in the context of
booting a kernel.

So rework the code to not rely on static variables and instead
collect the vendor-information when a round of alternatives is
to be applied.

Please drop the confusing vendor_ prefix for the function pointer
while you're at it.  The vendor id is just one of three inputs for
the patching.

Otherwise this looks good:
