We can't change L2 aux ctrl setting when do init because it has been
enabled. But we have the requirement to handle core idle. For CA9 core
idle, L2 controller may be reset. So we need to restore the L2
controller registers base on l2x0_saved_regs. This is why we need to
keep the value in l2x0_saved_regs to be the same as real setting.
