Details

(Keywords: meta, Whiteboard: [arm64:m4])

The ARM64 simulator is not quite up to par with the ARM simulator - it has no support for icache flush checking, single-step profiling, and similar goodies.  This holds back testing, to some extent.
Depends on: 1214199

Should also investigate whether importing a new vixl would provide any of these goodies.

[arm64:m4] because simulator bugs don't need to block shipping ARM64 Fennec.
