So far we were flushing almost the entire universe whenever a VM would
load/unload the SCTLR_EL1 and the two versions of that register had
different MMU enabled settings.  This turned out to be so slow that it
prevented forward progress for a nested VM, because a scheduler timer
tick interrupt would always be pending when we reached the nested VM.

To avoid this problem, we consider the SCTLR_EL2 when evaluating if
caches are on or off when entering virtual EL2 (because this is the
value that we end up shadowing onto the hardware EL1 register).
