SubjectRe: [PATCH v6 5/7] arm64: kvm: route synchronous external abort exceptions to el2

If it is firmware first solution, that is SCR_EL3.EA=1, all SError interrupt and synchronous External
Abort exceptions are taken to EL3, so EL3 firmware will handle it, KVM no needs to handle it.

HCR_EL3.TEA is only for EL3 to check its value to decide to jump to hypervisor or kernel.

Today I added the support to do some minimal emulation for RAS-Error-Record registers, thanks
for the good suggestion.
