Subject: [PATCH] ARM: cpuinfo: print exception level
Date: Thu,  2 Jun 2022 12:28:50 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

barebox boot on ARMv8 usually involves switching exception level, but
nevertheless during bring up, it can be useful to query exception level
from the command line. Thus add it to cpuinfo output. There's no
straight equivalent for ARMv7, so we #ifdef it out for non-v8.
