You have now inverted the logic: you detect the SError before
handling it, and set the flag accordingly. Which means that:

- you always enter this function having set ARM_EXIT_WITH_SERROR_BIT
   in the error code (which isn't passed to this function).

- you always take an exception, because you *know* there is a pending
   SError. Taking the exception on a non-RAS systems consumes it.

- If there is another SError pending after that, something bad happened
   at EL2, and we'll explode later on (on return to EL1).

So I think removing this hunk is the right thing to do.
