CNTHV_TVAL_EL2, Counter-timer Virtual Timer TimerValue Register (EL2)

The CNTHV_TVAL_EL2 characteristics are:

Purpose

Holds the timer value for the EL2 virtual timer.

Configuration

AArch64 System register CNTHV_TVAL_EL2 bits [31:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch32 System register CNTHV_TVAL[31:0] .

This register is present only when ARMv8.1-VHE is implemented. Otherwise, direct accesses to CNTHV_TVAL_EL2 are UNDEFINED.

If EL2 is not implemented, this register is RES0 from EL3.

RW fields in this register reset to architecturally UNKNOWN values.

Attributes

CNTHV_TVAL_EL2 is a 64-bit register.

Field descriptions

The CNTHV_TVAL_EL2 bit assignments are:

Bits [63:32]

Reserved, RES0.

TimerValue, bits [31:0]

From Armv8.1:

The TimerValue view of the EL2 virtual timer.

On a read of this register:

On a write of this register, CNTHV_CVAL_EL2 is set to (CNTVCT_EL0 + TimerValue), where TimerValue is treated as a signed 32-bit integer.

When CNTHV_CTL_EL2.ENABLE is 1, the timer condition is met when (CNTVCT_EL0 - CNTHV_CVAL_EL2) is greater than or equal to zero. This means that TimerValue acts like a 32-bit downcounter timer. When the timer condition is met:

When CNTHV_CTL_EL2.ENABLE is 0, the timer condition is not met, but CNTVCT_EL0 continues to count, so the TimerValue view appears to continue to count down.

This field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.


Otherwise:

Reserved, RES0.

Accessing the CNTHV_TVAL_EL2

When HCR_EL2.E2H is 1, without explicit synchronization, access from EL2 using the mnemonic CNTHV_TVAL_EL2 or CNTV_TVAL_EL0 are not guaranteed to be ordered with respect to accesses using the other mnemonic.

Accesses to this register use the following encodings:
