Thank you for reporting this change, and putting a patch together.

I pushed this as it is such a small change, but if you wish to

    sim/aarch64: Fix register ordering bug in blr (PR sim/25318)
    A comment in the implementation of blr says:
      /* The pseudo code in the spec says we update LR before fetching.
         the value from the rn.  */
    With 'rn' being the register holding the destination address.
    This may have been true at one point, but the ISA manual now clearly
    shows the destination register being read before the link register is
    This commit updates the implementation of blr to match.
