target/arm_dpm: prevent endless loop in arm_dpm_full_context()

The code treats registers that are shadowed in FIQ mode in a special
way: to read them out the target is first switches to USR mode. But
since USR != ANY the current implementation later skips register read,
and the loop becomes endless in case any !valid ARM_MODE_ANY is
present at the moment arm_dpm_full_context() is called. This was
reported in The issue
surfaced because 2efb1f14f611f2ff8a380b703f3e8bcb8a95d1ad added two
ARM_MODE_ANY registers ("sp" and "lr") which were not normally read,
so at the time a user was calling "arm reg" they were not valid.

Fix this by changing the mode appropriately while keeping the "mode"
variable state intact so it would later match register's mode.

Compile-tested only.
