[0]0x0R/WEvent counter and cycle counter overflow flag

When reading this register, any overflow flag that reads as 0 indicates that the counter has not overflowed. An overflow flag that reads as 1 indicates that the counter has overflowed.

When writing to this register, any overflow flag written with a value of 0 is ignored, that is, no change. An overflow flag written with a value of 1 clears the counter overflow flag. The negated counter overflow bits are exported from the CCI-400 on the nEVNTCNTOVERFLOW[4:0] signal. You can use this to trigger interrupts. The MSB corresponds to the cycle count overflow.
