No strong opinion but I am wondering if it makes sense to get cpu
logical index and fetch the cpu of_node here to contain the refcount on
it within this function while we are trying to consolidate. I do see
that may not be so useful in psci.c but keeping refcount for cpu of_node
here keeps the user free from that.
I am fine as it is if there are reasons not to do that.
