As above, zero is a valid GSIV, and is valid for the non-secure timer
interrupts. The check is wrong for non-secure interrupts.
We can ignore the secure timer interrupt since it's irrelevant to us,
and remove the check.
Regardless, the spec is inconsistent w.r.t. the secure interrupt being
zero if not present, since zero is a valid GSIV. That should be reported
to the ASWG.
