Changes in v7:
 - Addressed comments concerning the PSCI changes from Mark Rutland, which moves
   the psci firmware driver to a new firmware subdir and change to force PSCI PC
   mode during boot to cope with kexec'ed booted kernels.
 - Added some maintainers in cc for the timer/nohz patches.
 - Minor update to the new genpd governor, taking into account the state's
   poweroff latency while validating the sleep duration time.
 - Addressed a problem pointed out by Geert Uytterhoeven, around calling
   pm_runtime_get|put() for CPUs that has not been attached to a CPU PM domain.
 - Re-based on Linus' latest master.

This series is a re-worked version from Lina Iyer's two series [1] that got
posted more than a year ago by now. I have picked up the series and done a
significant re-work of it and here's the result. All patches have been changed,
some have been dropped, some are entirely new.

For those few changes that are kind of similar, I have kept Lina's authorship,
the rest are now authored by me.

 - Lina (or anybody else for that matter) please tell if you think I should
   change, in regards to what tag/authorship should be for each commit!

Some background:

Overall this series have been discussed over years at various Linux conferences
and LKML, although let me give a brief introduction and then the rest can be
read in each changelog.

For ARM, the PSCI firmware interface may be managing the power to the CPUs.
Depending on the SoC, CPUs may also be arranged in hierarchical manner, which
could add another level of complexity from a CPU idle management point of view.

PSCI v1.0+ adds support for the so called OS initiated CPU suspend mode, which
enables a more fine grained method, allowing Linux to get more control, in
regards to being energy efficient. This is typically useful for these kind of
complex battery driven platforms.

Now, in principle what is missing today around CPU idle management for these
SoCs arranging CPUs in a hierarchical manner, that is what this series intends
to address.

I could potentially have split the series into two parts, but for completeness
I decided to post it as one. Please tell if want me to change!

 - The first part are changes to generic PM code (genpd, cpu_pm and timers):
   Patch 1 -> Patch 9.

 - The second part, which depends on the first, are changes specific to
   PSCI/ARM64 (psci, of, arm64): Patch 10 -> Patch 26.

The series is based on Linus' master as of today. The code has been tested on a
QCOM 410c dragonboard and I except that test coverage should be increased by
some more boards shortly (for ARM64 with PSCI OSI support - only a few DT
changes are needed). You may find the code at: next

If for some reason you want to have a look at the previous version, it's
available at a branch, next_v6, in the same git as above.

Kind regards
Ulf Hansson
