Thanks Marc's comments, I completely agree with you, I understand the architecture, in non-VHE, user space mapping only exists at EL1 and pointed by the ttbr0_el1.
In the EL1, it uses ttbr0_el1 to point userspace page table, uses ttbr1_el1 to point kernel mapping.
In the EL2, it uses ttbr0_el2 or vttbr_el2 for address translation, cannot use the ttbr0_el1.

OK, so I plant to remove the PAN setting at EL2 in non-VHE.
