It grew organically, and was initially matching the original order
of the save/restore sequence. This order has long disappeared with
VHE, and this is essentially nothing more than a bag of indices
(although NV does bring some order back to deal with VNCR-backed
registers).

I think we want both correctness *and* performance, for both VHE
and nVHE. Things like EL0 registers should be able to be moved
to load/put on all implementations, and the correct switching
be done at the right spot only when required.

Thanks,
