I think we also need to fix up virt_to_phys(__cpu_soft_restart) in
arch/arm64/kernel/cpu-reset.h. Otherwise, this looks complete for uses
falling under arch/arm64/.
I also think it's worth mentioning in the commit message that this patch
adds and __lm_sym_addr() and uses it in some places so that low-level
helpers can use virt_to_phys() or __pa() consistently.
The PSCI change doesn't conflict with patches  that'll go via
arm-soc, so I'm happy for that PSCI change to go via the arm64 tree,
though it may be worth splitting into its own patch just in case
something unexpected crops up.
With those fixed up:

Otherwise, I just have a few nits below.

Nit: we can drop the unsigned long cast given __pa_symbol() contains

Nit: I think we can also simplify this to:
... since phys_to_page(p) is (pfn_to_page(__phys_to_pfn(p)))
... and __phys_to_pfn(p) is PHYS_PFN(p)

Nit: likewise, we can use phys_to_page() here.
