[PATCH v2 0/2] make reinitialization of ARM core components possible

When ARM core resumes from low-power mode where losing power, for my
example: CA-9 MPCore resumes from Dormant/Shutdown, we have to
reinitialize components like L2 Cache, GIC and SCU to bring system
back to work.

The patch set basically removes __init annotation from a bunch of
initialization functions, so that platform resume procedure can call
into them again to set those components up.

Changes since v1:
 * Drop the GIC patch, as it's been handled by [1] nicely.
 * Drop the change of adding empty l2x0_of_init(), as it's been
   handled by [2].

      ARM: smp_scu: remove __init annotation from scu_enable()
