- Reserved, [63:0]
Reserved for Arm® internal use.
- CPUPCR_EL3 is only accessible in Secure state.
- Accessing the CPUPCR_EL3
The CPUPCR_EL3 can be written only when the system is idle. Arm recommends that you write to this register after a powerup reset, before the MMU is enabled.
Writing to this register might cause UNPREDICTABLE behaviors. Therefore, Arm strongly recommends that you do not modify this register unless directed by Arm.
This register is accessible as follows:
This register can be read with the MRS instruction using the following syntax:
This register can be written with the MSR instruction using the following syntax:
MSR <systemreg>, <Xt>
This syntax is encoded with the following settings in the instruction encoding:
This register is accessible in software as follows:
'n/a' Not accessible. The core cannot be executing at this Exception level, so this access is not possible.
