Subject: [PATCH] arm64/io: Don't use WZR in writel

This is a partial revert of commit ee5e41b5f21a
("arm64/io: Allow I/O writes to use {W,X}ZR")

When we try to use the zero register directly on some SoCs,
their security will make them freeze due to a firmware bug.
This behavior is seen with the arm-smmu driver freezing on
TLBI and TLBSYNC on MSM8996, MSM8998, SDM630, SDM660.

Allocating a temporary register to store the zero for the
write actually solves the issue on these SoCs.
