Doesn't change the reason the earlier patch was NAKd, we would still be
modifying the core SMCCC call to be non-compliant.

And doing it only when OP-TEE is not installed doesn't gain us anything,
we already have our own SMC calls for when OP-TEE is not available, this
patch is specifically so the OMAP2+ boot still works even when OP-TEE is

If you can get Mark to take my old patch then we can think about moving
more legacy SMC callers to the SMCCC, otherwise this patch is what we
need to get OP-TEE enabled OMAP2+ platforms to boot and we will just
stick to the custom SMC functions we already have for everything else.
