Running an hypervisor in Armv8-R AEM FVP platform, hypervisor mode, aarch32. While trap and emulating an MMIO region where the supervisor mode guest emits an STRD instruction (targetting a region protected by the 2nd stage MPU), HSR.ISS comes up "empty". That is, despite ELR_hyp, HDFAR and HSR.EC being correct, HSR.ISS.ISV is 0. Therefore, I don't have sufficient information to decode and emulate the access. I guess it would be possible to decode the instruction "by hand", but I don't understand why this is happening. Can you imagine any reason why this information is not there? Should I expect this in real hardware? Could this possibly be some kind of bug or issue with the model?
The GIC function's comment is very clear. Two traps are more simpler than decode invalid dataabort and emulate 64-bit IO.
Glad to be of help!
