No, if QEMU's reset is not resetting registers to the right value
the correct thing to do is fix the reset code. The way device
reset is supposed to work is that QEMU knows the right values
to use and it writes them to the kernel.

QEMU doesn't reset ICC_CTLR_EL1 to 0 for TCG:
    cs->icc_ctlr_el1[GICV3_NS] = ICC_CTLR_EL1_A3V |
        (1 << ICC_CTLR_EL1_IDBITS_SHIFT) |
        (7 << ICC_CTLR_EL1_PRIBITS_SHIFT);

but I don't think that code gets run for the KVM VGIC.
