A5.6.4 Mis-programming contiguous hints

A programmer might mis-program the translation tables so that:

  • The block size being used to translate the address is larger than the size of the input address.
  • The address range translated by a set of blocks marked as contiguous, by use of the contiguous bit, is larger than the size of the input address.

If there is this kind of mis-programming, the Cortex®-A55 core does not generate a translation fault.
