Is there anything that guarantees we'll never see the same GIC connected
to an arm64 CPU? Probably not. So you might as well do it completely. At
the minimum, mask out the top bits of the nr_lr word.
Also, there is a number of things that are not quite clear about this
GICH implementation. Given how extensive the changes are in GICD, do the
LRs have the exact same format as GICv2 (i.e. supporting only 8 vcpus,
Jazz is not dead. It just smells funny...
