Hmm. I think that's a debug leftover from my early attempt at making
things work with QEMU, which initializes things in the opposite order
as kvmtool. It should be removed (or replaced by a fat WARN_ON).

Sure, will do.

Yes, makes sense.

Hey, for once I wasn't trying to optimize early! ;-) This would be
useful indeed, as I expect GICv4 systems to be the absolute minority for
the foreseeable future.
