    xen/arm: Survive unknown traps from guests
    Currently we crash Xen if we see an ESR_EL2.EC value we don't recognise.
    As configurable disables/enables are added to the architecture
    (controlled by RES1/RESO bits respectively), with associated synchronous
    exceptions, it may be possible for a guest to trigger exceptions with
    classes that we don't recognise.
    While we can't service these exceptions in a manner useful to the guest,
    we can avoid bringing down the host. Per ARM DDI 0487A.k_iss10775, page
    D7-1937, EC values within the range 0x00 - 0x2c are reserved for future
    use with synchronous exceptions, and EC within the range 0x2d - 0x3f may
    be used for either synchronous or asynchronous exceptions.
    The patch makes Xen handle any unknown EC by injecting an UNDEFINED
    exception into the guest, with a corresponding (ratelimited) warning in
    the log.
    This patch is based on Linux commit f050fe7a9164 "arm: KVM: Survive unknown
    traps from the guest".
