no indeed. but we currently use a single static a15memmap memory map in
virt. This one is currently planned to be reused for machines
instantiating GICv3 so we start seeing things like
VIRT_GIC_CPU = VIRT_GIC_REDIST. I fear this is going to become messy.
What is your guidance, should we introduce new memory maps for GICv3
enabled machine or should we move to a single dynamic memory map?
