From: Carlo Caione <carlo at endlessm.com>

In the Amlogic SoCs the secure monitor calls are used for a lot of reasons:
interact with the NVMEM (efuses), check the reboot reason, set USB boot, ...

This driver defines a generic interface towards the secure monitor that can be
used by more specialized drivers to interact with the secure monitor itself
without worrying about bounce buffers managing.


  * Added comments
  * Fix checking u32 < 0
  * s/-ENODEV/-EINVAL/ in the probe function
  * Use WARN_ON()

  * Moved IDs from DT to header file
  * Made read/write bounce buffers not mandatory
  * Introduced helper meson_sm_map_shmem()

  * Changed patches order
  * Removed now useless PATCH 2/4
  * Changed compatible to be SoC-specific
  * In the DT now we use SoC-agnostic IDs for the SMC functions. These IDs are
    traslated into SoC specific function IDs inside the driver
  * Added error checking on meson_sm_call() to retrieve the base address
  * Improved printing on errors

  * Moved driver to drivers/firmware
  * Added EXPORT_SYMBOL macros
  * Changed '_' in '-'
  * Introduced 'struct meson_sm_firmware' and 'meson_sm_get_fw()' to be used by
    drivers using the secure-monitor to enforce probe ordering

  * All the SMC function identifiers are now in a SoC-specific header file to
    be included by the DTS files so the SMC commands are now defined in the DT
    instead to be hardcoded into the driver
  * Patchset is no longer an RFC
  * Better error management and boundary checking
  * s/unsigned int/u32/
  * SMC call not only on CPU 0
  * Fix memory leaking
  * s/amlogic/meson/ in the directory names
