For ARMv7-M this works, since r11 is not used in the processors
PROCINFO_INITFUNC function (__cpu_flush in struct proc_info_list, which
is __v7m_setup in proc-v7m.S).

However, afaik, head-nommu.S can be used by different processors too,
hence that register needs to be free to use for all possible __cpu_flush

That said, proc-v7.S stores r11 on the stack, so it really seems that
r11 is ok to use?
