The VSTTBR_EL2 characteristics are:

The base register for stage 2 translation tables to translate Secure IPAs in the Secure EL1&0 translation regime. Holds the base address of the translation table for the initial lookup for stage 2 of an address translation for a Secure IPA in the Secure EL1&0 translation regime, and other information for this translation stage.

This register is present only when FEAT_SEL2 is implemented. Otherwise, direct accesses to VSTTBR_EL2 are UNDEFINED.

This register has no effect if EL2 is not enabled in the current Security state.

VSTTBR_EL2 is a 64-bit register.

- Bits A[55:x] of the stage 2 translation table base address bits are in register bits[55:x].
- Bits A[(x-1):0] of the stage 2 translation table base address are zero.

Address bit x is the minimum address bit required to align the translation table to the size of the table. x is calculated based on LOG2(StartTableSize), as described in VMSAv9-128. The smallest permitted value of x is 5.

The reset behavior of this field is:

- On a Warm reset, this field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

Skip Level. Skip Level determines the number of levels to be skipped from the regular start level of the Secure stage 2 translation table walk.

SKL | Meaning |
---|---|

0b00 |
Skip 0 level from the regular start level. |

0b01 |
Skip 1 level from the regular start level. |

0b10 |
Skip 2 levels from the regular start level. |

0b11 |
Skip 3 levels from the regular start level. |

The reset behavior of this field is:

- On a Warm reset, this field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

Common not Private, for stage 2 of the Secure EL1&0 translation regime. In an implementation that includes FEAT_TTCNP, indicates whether each entry that is pointed to by VSTTBR_EL2 is a member of a common set that can be used by every PE in the Inner Shareable domain for which the value of VSTTBR_EL2.CnP is 1.

CnP | Meaning |
---|---|

0b0 |
The translation table entries pointed to by VSTTBR_EL2 are permitted to differ from the entries for VSTTBR_EL2 for other PEs in the Inner Shareable domain. This is not affected by the value of the current VMID. |

0b1 |
The translation table entries pointed to by VSTTBR_EL2 are the same as the translation table entries for every other PE in the Inner Shareable domain for which the value of VSTTBR_EL2.CnP is 1 and the VMID is the same as the current VMID. |

This bit is permitted to be cached in a TLB.

Note

If the value of VSTTBR_EL2.CnP bit is 1 on multiple PEs in the same Inner Shareable domain and those VSTTBR_EL2s do not point to the same translation table entries when using the current VMID, then the results of translations using VSTTBR_EL2 are CONSTRAINED UNPREDICTABLE, see 'CONSTRAINED UNPREDICTABLE behaviors due to caching of control or data values'.

When this register has an architecturally-defined reset value, this field resets to a value that is architecturally UNKNOWN.

The reset behavior of this field is:

- On a Warm reset, this field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.

RES0 | BADDR | ||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

BADDR | CnP |

Reserved, RES0.

The BADDR field represents a 52-bit address if one of the following applies:

- FEAT_LPA is implemented, the 64KB granule size is in use, and the value of VTCR_EL2.PS is 0b110.
- FEAT_LPA2 is implemented, the 4KB or 16KB granule size is in use, and the Effective value of VTCR_EL2.DS is 1.
- FEAT_D128 is implemented, 56-bit PAs are supported, the 64KB granule size is in use, and the value of VTCR_EL2.D128 is 0.

When VSTTBR_EL2.BADDR represents a 52-bit addresses, all of the following apply:

- Register bits[47:x] hold bits[47:x] of the stage 2 translation table base address, where x is determined by the size of the translation table at the start level.
- The smallest permitted value of x is 6.
- Register bits[5:2] hold bits[51:48] of the stage 2 translation table base address.
- Bits[x:0] of the translation table base address are zero.
- When x>6 register bits[(x-1):6] are RES0.
- Register bit[1] is RES0.

Note

If BADDR represents a 52-bit address, and the translation table has fewer than eight entries, the table must be aligned to 64 bytes. Otherwise the translation table must be aligned to the size of the table.

For the 64KB granule, if FEAT_LPA is not implemented, and the value of VTCR_EL2.PS is 0b110, one the following IMPLEMENTATION DEFINED behaviors occur:

- BADDR uses the extended format to represent a 52-bit base address.
- BADDR does not use the extended format.

When the value of ID_AA64MMFR0_EL1.PARange indicates that the implementation supports a 56 bit PA size, bits [55:52] of the stage 2 translation table base address are zero.

If the Effective value of VTCR_EL2.PS is not 0b110, then:

- Register bits[47:x] hold bits[47:x] of the stage 2 translation table base address.
- Register bits[(x-1):1] are RES0.
- If the implementation supports 52-bit PAs and IPAs then bits[51:48] of the translation table base addresses used in this stage of translation are 0b0000.

If any VSTTBR_EL2[47:1] bit that is defined as RES0 has the value 1 when a translation table walk is performed using VSTTBR_EL2, then the translation table base address might be misaligned, with effects that are CONSTRAINED UNPREDICTABLE, and must be one of the following:

- Bits[x-1:0] of the translation table base address are treated as if all the bits are zero. The value read back from the corresponding register bits is either the value written to the register or zero.
- The result of the calculation of an address for a translation table walk using this register can be corrupted in those bits that are nonzero.

The AArch64 Virtual Memory System Architecture chapter describes how x is calculated based on the value of VSTCR_EL2.T0SZ, the stage of translation, and the translation granule size.

The reset behavior of this field is:

- On a Warm reset, this field resets to an architecturally UNKNOWN value.
