DSPSR_EL0, Debug Saved Program Status Register

The DSPSR_EL0 characteristics are:

Purpose

Holds the saved process state for Debug state. On entering Debug state, PSTATE information is written to this register. On exiting Debug state, values are copied from this register to PSTATE.

Configuration

AArch64 System register DSPSR_EL0 bits [31:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch32 System register DSPSR[31:0] .

RW fields in this register reset to architecturally UNKNOWN values.

Attributes

DSPSR_EL0 is a 64-bit register.
