Subject: [PATCH 5/5] arm64: Document the requirement for SCR_EL3.HCE
Date: Thu, 12 Aug 2021 20:02:13 +0100	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <20210812190213.2601506-6-maz@kernel.org> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20210812190213.2601506-1-maz@kernel.org>

It is amazing that we never documented this absolutely basic
requirement: if you boot the kernel at EL2, you'd better
enable the HVC instruction from EL3.

Really, just do it.
