RMR_EL2, Reset Management Register (EL2)

The RMR_EL2 characteristics are:

Purpose

If EL2 is the highest implemented Exception level and this register is implemented:

  • A write to the register at EL2 can request a Warm reset.
  • If EL2 can use AArch32 and AArch64, this register specifies the Execution state that the PE boots into on a Warm reset.

Configuration

AArch64 System register RMR_EL2 bits [31:0] are architecturally mapped to AArch32 System register HRMR[31:0] when IsHighestEL(EL2).

Only implemented if EL2 is the highest implemented Exception level. In this case:

  • If EL2 can use AArch32 and AArch64 then this register must be implemented.
  • If EL2 cannot use AArch32 then it is IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED whether the register is implemented.

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

See the field descriptions for the reset values. These apply whenever the register is implemented.

Attributes

RMR_EL2 is a 64-bit register.

Field descriptions

The RMR_EL2 bit assignments are:

Bits [63:2]

Reserved, RES0.

RR, bit [1]

Reset Request. Setting this bit to 1 requests a Warm reset.

This field resets to 0.

AA64, bit [0]

When EL2 can use AArch32, determines which Execution state the PE boots into after a Warm reset:

AA64Meaning
0b0

AArch32.

0b1

AArch64.

On coming out of the Warm reset, execution starts at the IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED reset vector address of the specified Execution state.

If EL2 cannot use AArch32 this bit is RAO/WI.

When implemented as a RW field, this field resets to 1 on a Cold reset.

Accessing the RMR_EL2

Accesses to this register use the following encodings:

MRS <Xt>, RMR_EL2

op0op1CRnCRmop2
0b110b1000b11000b00000b010
if PSTATE.EL == EL1 && EL2Enabled() && HCR_EL2.NV == '1' then
    AArch64.SystemAccessTrap(EL2, 0x18);
elsif PSTATE.EL == EL2 && IsHighestEL(EL2) then
    return RMR_EL2;
else
    UNDEFINED;
              

MSR RMR_EL2, <Xt>

op0op1CRnCRmop2
0b110b1000b11000b00000b010
if PSTATE.EL == EL1 && EL2Enabled() && HCR_EL2.NV == '1' then
    AArch64.SystemAccessTrap(EL2, 0x18);
elsif PSTATE.EL == EL2 && IsHighestEL(EL2) then
    RMR_EL2 = X[t];
else
    UNDEFINED;
