Hi, Mark

Ok, I'll check it again with our related engineers.

Actually, I had read all of your comments carefully before sending
each version of patches, and I replied you a few days early, I guess
you may miss it :)

If we just implemented psci-0.1 until now, can we submit this path
without "compatible = "arm,psci-0.2"", but only with " compatible =
"arm,psci" ".
