The above code is specific to Exynos5250 and hence it is not required
to check the IMPLEMENT_HOLD_REG bit in HCON register. On Exynos5250,
the hold register is implemented and available.

Exynos5250 hardware manual specifies additional restrictions on the
use of hold register. The above code checks for those restrictions and
programs the USE_HOLD_REG accordingly. Please let me know if there is
any condition that is not handled by the above code.
