GICH_ELRSR, Empty List Register Status Register

The GICH_ELRSR characteristics are:


Indicates which List registers contain valid interrupts.


Some or all RW fields of this register have defined reset values.

This register is available when the GIC implementation supports interrupt virtualization.


GICH_ELRSR is a 32-bit register.

Field descriptions

The GICH_ELRSR bit assignments are:

RES0Status<n>, bit [n], for n = 0 to 15

Bits [31:16]

Reserved, RES0.

Status<n>, bit [n], for n = 0 to 15

Status bit for List register <n>:


GICH_LR<n>, if implemented, contains a valid interrupt. Using this List register can result in overwriting a valid interrupt.


GICH_LR<n> does not contain a valid interrupt. The List register is empty and can be used without overwriting a valid interrupt or losing an EOI maintenance interrupt.

For any GICH_LR<n> register, the corresponding status bit is set to 1 if GICH_LR<n>.State is 0b00 and either:

This field resets to 1.

Accessing the GICH_ELRSR

This register is used only when System register access is not enabled. When System register access is enabled:

  • For AArch32 implementations, ICH_ELRSR provides equivalent functionality.
  • For AArch64 implementations, ICH_ELRSR_EL2 provides equivalent functionality.

Bits corresponding to unimplemented List registers are RES0.

GICH_ELRSR can be accessed through the memory-mapped interfaces:

GIC Virtual interface control0x0030GICH_ELRSR

This interface is accessible as follows:

  • When GICD_CTLR.DS == 0b0 access to this register is RO.
  • When IsAccessSecure() access to this register is RO.
  • When !IsAccessSecure() access to this register is RO.
