At the moment, only QC SoCs seem to be affected, probably because
everyone else has debugged their hypervisor (or most likely doesn't
bother with shipping one).

In all honesty, we need some information from QC here: which SoCs are
affected, what is the exact nature of the bug, can it be triggered from
EL0. Randomly papering over symptoms is not something I really like
doing, and is likely to generate problems on unaffected systems.
