VMPIDR_EL2, Virtualization Multiprocessor ID Register

The VMPIDR_EL2 characteristics are:

Purpose

Holds the value of the Virtualization Multiprocessor ID. This is the value returned by EL1 reads of MPIDR_EL1.

Configuration

AArch64 System register VMPIDR_EL2 bits [31:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch32 System register VMPIDR[31:0] .

If EL2 is not implemented, reads of this register return the value of the MPIDR_EL1, and writes to the register are ignored.

This register has no effect if EL2 is not enabled in the current Security state.

RW fields in this register reset to architecturally UNKNOWN values.

Attributes

VMPIDR_EL2 is a 64-bit register.

Bits [63:40]

Reserved, RES0.

Aff3, bits [39:32]

Affinity level 3. See the description of Aff0 for more information.

Aff3 is not supported in AArch32 state.

This field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

Bit [31]

Reserved, RES1.

U, bit [30]

Indicates a Uniprocessor system, as distinct from PE 0 in a multiprocessor system. The possible values of this bit are:

UMeaning
0b0

Processor is part of a multiprocessor system.

0b1

Processor is part of a uniprocessor system.

This field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

Bits [29:25]

Reserved, RES0.

MT, bit [24]

Indicates whether the lowest level of affinity consists of logical PEs that are implemented using a multithreading type approach. See the description of Aff0 for more information about affinity levels. The possible values of this bit are:

MTMeaning
0b0

Performance of PEs at the lowest affinity level is largely independent.

0b1

Performance of PEs at the lowest affinity level is very interdependent.

This field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

Aff2, bits [23:16]

Affinity level 2. See the description of Aff0 for more information.

This field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

Aff1, bits [15:8]

Affinity level 1. See the description of Aff0 for more information.

This field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

Aff0, bits [7:0]

Affinity level 0. This is the affinity level that is most significant for determining PE behavior. Higher affinity levels are increasingly less significant in determining PE behavior. The assigned value of the MPIDR.{Aff2, Aff1, Aff0} or MPIDR_EL1.{Aff3, Aff2, Aff1, Aff0} set of fields of each PE must be unique within the system as a whole.

This field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.
