I'll update this (and similar) to trap such registers when we don't support
SPE in the guest.

My original concern in the cover letter was in how to prevent the guest
from attempting to use these registers in the first place - I think the
solution I was looking for is to trap-and-emulate ID_AA64DFR0_EL1 such that
the PMSVer bits indicate that SPE is not emulated.
