[Qemu-arm] [PATCH 3/9] hw/arm/boot: If booting a kernel in EL2, set SCR_

From: Peter Maydell
Subject: [Qemu-arm] [PATCH 3/9] hw/arm/boot: If booting a kernel in EL2, set SCR_EL3.HCE
Date: Tue, 13 Mar 2018 15:34:52 +0000

If we're directly booting a Linux kernel and the CPU supports both
EL3 and EL2, we start the kernel in EL2, as it expects. We must also
set the SCR_EL3.HCE bit in this situation, so that the HVC
instruction is enabled rather than UNDEFing. Otherwise at least some
kernels will panic when trying to initialize KVM in the guest.
