Sorry, it is TRCIDR1. Got it mixed with the TRCIDR3 for exlevel mask.

Correct. The idea is to use the TRCDEVARCH instead of the TRCIDR1 for
drvdata->arch. We use drvdata->arch to detect if the ETM is supported.
At the moment, we blindly support all ETMv4.x components.
With the system instruction support, we want to make sure we use a
CoreSight architected register and not an ETM architected one to
detect if the component is an ETM.

Yes, I can change it.

I doubt if DEVTYPE is necessary when we are doing a system instruction access
from the CPU. The DEVTYPE identifies the component as PE and a trace source.
Both of which are implicit with the system instruction access, but is mandatory
for an AMBA bus discovery as it is memory mapped. Moreover the TRCDEVTYPE is
only accessible from the memory mapped interface and the external debugger interface.
(as per ETM TRM).

Thanks for the review.
