You need to upgrade your QEMU -- we improved the emulation
of all our Cortex-A9 boards to make sure they set valid values
for the base address register, in order to fix exactly this regression.
QEMU 2.0 or later should work.

(As an aside, I think the Aegis quirk test is pretty ugly:
"base address happens to be set to zero" is not exactly
a very reliable way to identify a particular SoC. However
in this case QEMU was emulating real h/w insufficiently
accurately, so we fixed it.)
