[Qemu-devel] Shouldn't cortex-a15 enable ARM_FEATURE_EL2?

Hi Peter,

I'm trying to use the MRS/MSR banked register instructions you recently 
implemented, but found that they raised an undefined instruction exception on 
the cortex-a15 CPU model. This seems to be caused by the check in 
msr_banked_access_decode(), which looks for ARM_FEATURE_V8 or ARM_FEATURE_EL2.

The quick kludge below worked for me, but I don't have high confidence in its 
correctness -- the CPU supports the virtualisation extensions, but I've no idea 
whether the rest of qemu is consistent with enabling that feature. I guess you 
have a better idea?
