The previous patch (I think you meant #4) made the CP15_64 handlers
correct (since as it happens they are all vtimer related), while it is
only at this point that the cp15_32 registers are all finally updated.

I'm not sure the ordering matters, none of this will be active until the
final patch removes the top-level check. IOW I think the patches make as
much sense in either order and this is the one it has ended up in.
