ETMv4 supports TRCDEVARCH, so I think it's good to use the naming
"CS_ETMV4_TRCDEVARCH"?

This is typo fixing; it's irrelevant to the topic in this patch, it's
good to use a separate patch for the typo fixing.

I checked ETMv4.3 and ETMv4.4 spec (ARM IHI0064E for ETMv4.3 and ARM
IHI0064F for ETMv4.4), both clarify ETMv4 has the register TRCDEVARCH;
thus TRCDEVARCH is not a new register introduced by ETE.

For this case, it's good to directly add a new field in the metadata
array for recording register TRCDEVARCH.

If there have any new registers are introduced by ETE, then Mike's
suggestion for using new magic number is the right thing to do.

Spurious change for "CS_ETMV4_PRIV_MAX"?
