 Of course. It allows to choose GIC version used by ARM 'virt' machine. By default it's 2, but you
can now set it to 3.
 Actually, initially i proposed another machine type, like 'virt-v3', IMHO this would be more
logical because this is kind of different architecture. But Peter Maydell disagreed and insisted on
option. So we have an option.

 When choosing 'virt' machine type for ARM architecture.
