I think this should be return true?
Both are valid. It depends how you consider the workflow here. If you return:
- true: You say that this helper already took care of that CPU. So no
need to continue further.
- false: This CPU does not match, let's fallback to a different
method. That method will bailout later (see install_bp_hardening_vec).
I choose the latte because the SMCCC workaround is considered as an
alternative method. So we want to fallback to the other one if it does not
work at the cost of few extra instructions. But that's boot and going to be
reworked in patch #11. Indeed this is just a temporary solution to plumb the
new hardening method before we kill the PSCI_GET_VERSION one.
Yeah, I noticed that this is moot given the next patches in the series.
Given that you are already resending the series, I would also change this
to return true because I think it makes more sense, but it is
unimportant so either way:
I will keep false, because it make little sense to return true here, It
will actually bring more confusion as we return false just after for a

I am going to drop it as I need some rework base on Andre's comment.
