When restore GIC/ITS, GICR_CTLR must be restored after GICR_PROPBASER
and GICR_PENDBASER. That is important, as both of GICR_PROPBASER and
GICR_PENDBASER will fail to be loaded when lpi has enabled yet in
GICR_CTLR. Keep the restore order above will avoid that issue.
Shout it out at the doc is very helpful that may avoid lots of debug work.
