ACTLR_EL2, Auxiliary Control Register (EL2)

The ACTLR_EL2 characteristics are:

Purpose

Provides IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED configuration and control options for EL2.

Note

Arm recommends the contents of this register are updated to apply to EL0 when HCR_EL2.{E2H, TGE} is {1, 1}, gaining configuration and control fields from the ACTLR_EL1. This avoids the need for software to manage the contents of these register when switching between a Guest OS and a Host OS.

Configuration

AArch64 System register ACTLR_EL2 bits [31:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch32 System register HACTLR[31:0] .

AArch64 System register ACTLR_EL2 bits [63:32] are architecturally mapped to AArch32 System register HACTLR2[31:0] .

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

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

ACTLR_EL2 is a 64-bit register.

This field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

Accessing the ACTLR_EL2

Accesses to this register use the following encodings:

MRS <Xt>, ACTLR_EL2

op0op1CRnCRmop2
0b110b1000b00010b00000b001
if PSTATE.EL == EL0 then
    UNDEFINED;
elsif PSTATE.EL == EL1 then
    if EL2Enabled() && HCR_EL2.NV == '1' then
        AArch64.SystemAccessTrap(EL2, 0x18);
    else
        UNDEFINED;
elsif PSTATE.EL == EL2 then
    return ACTLR_EL2;
elsif PSTATE.EL == EL3 then
    return ACTLR_EL2;

    ACTLR_EL2 = X[t];
elsif PSTATE.EL == EL3 then
    ACTLR_EL2 = X[t];
