Thanks for the review. After some more (internal) discussions around
these patches, I need to get clarification on the architecture whether
changing the TTBCR.A1 bit is enough to guarantee an ASID change (I do
this trick to change to the reserved ASID and avoid TLB invalidation as
normally required by changes to translation control registers). If
that's not allowed by the architecture, I would have to change the
patches to switch to a reserved TTBR0 rather than disabling TTBR0 walks
at the TTBCR level.
