I have already posted some support for ARMv8.4-TTL as part of my NV
series [1],
patches 62, 67, 68 and 69. This only deals with Stage-2 translation so

If you intend to add Stage-1, please build on top of what I have already
posted
(I can extract the patches on a separate branch if you want).

Thanks,

M.
