To use this crate simply add the dependency to your Cargo.toml file:

ruspiro-arch-aarch64 = "0.1.1"

With the dependency maintained in the Cargo.toml file the different defined system registers can be accessed as shown in the following code snipped.

For each available system register a mdule with the registers name is available providing functions to read/write the contents of the register. Those read/write accesses can be either use raw values (u32, u64 - based on register size) or predifined register fields. If a register field is used value contained in the field is properly shifted and masked when written to or read from a register.

use ruspiro_arch_aarch64::register::*;

fn some_function() {
    // read the current exeption level - do this by accessing the predefined
    // register field
    let current_el = currentel::read(currentel::EL::Field);

    if current_el == currentel::EL::EL2 {
        // if a register definition provides predefined constants for specific
        // register fields those can be used for instance to write to the register
