CNTVOFF is controlled by the hypervisor, so you cannot access it from Dom0.

If none of this code should be necessary when PSCI is enabled, then you can
check the presence of PSCI (see psci_smp_available()).

Another solution is to check whether we are running on xen (see xen_domain()).

In any case, I would still surround the two checks because the "armgcnt" should
really not be touched by Dom0.
