Please don't "guess", because this adds zero value, and we might as
well run with the vendor crap instead.

Read CBAR_EL1, and use this value to construct the memory map, as per
the A53 TRM. Just booting with KVM enabled means nothing, as this is
solely used at VM run time. You need run a full VM with GIC-2
emulation.
