I had open questions on v3 regarding your PSCI imlpementation. You
mentioned that you are using the aarch64 bootwrapper, but your DT
describes PSCI 0.2, and the (upstream) bootwrapper does not implement
PSCI 0.2. Adding the old PSCI compatible string is _not_ sufficient if
you do not have a full PSCI 0.2 implementation.

Given that PSCI 0.2 requires more functionality to be implemented, I'd
like to know that your implementation is spec-compliant (implementing
the mandatory functions, nters the kernel in the correct state, etc),
and that it has been tested.

Would you be able to look at my comments from the last posting please?
