M3 behavior should be considered as a "hardware" as far as Linux running on MPU is concerned, and firmware helps change the behavior by accounting for SoC quirks. *if* we have ability to handle this in the firmware, there is no need to carry this in Linux.
I agree with Nishant. I don't like this patch and IIRC, I gave same
comment in the last version. Linux need not know about all such firmware
quirks. Also all these M3 specific stuff, should be done somewhere
else. Probably having a small M3 driver won't be a bad idea.
