[PATCH V2 1/3] ARM: tegra114: Reprogram GIC CPU interface to bypass IRQ on CPU PM entry

There is a difference between GICv1 and v2 when CPU in power management
mode (aka CPU power down on Tegra). For GICv1, IRQ/FIQ interrupt lines
going to CPU are same lines which are also used for wake-interrupt.
Therefore, we cannot disable the GIC CPU interface if we need to use same
interrupts for CPU wake purpose. This creates a race condition for CPU
power off entry. Also, in GICv1, disabling GICv1 CPU interface puts GICv1
into bypass mode such that incoming legacy IRQ/FIQ are sent to CPU, which
means disabling GIC CPU interface doesn't really disable IRQ/FIQ to CPU.

GICv2 provides a wake IRQ/FIQ (for wake-event purpose), which are not
disabled by GIC CPU interface. This is done by adding a bypass override
capability when the interrupts are disabled at the CPU interface. To
support this, there are four bits about IRQ/FIQ BypassDisable in CPU
interface Control Register. When the IRQ/FIQ not being driver by the
CPU interface, each interrupt output signal can be deasserted rather
than being driven by the legacy interrupt input.

So the wake-event can be used as wakeup signals to SoC (system power

To prevent race conditions and ensure proper interrupt routing on
Cortex-A15 CPUs when they are power-gated, add a CPU PM notifier
call-back to reprogram the GIC CPU interface on PM entry. The
GIC CPU interface will be reset back to its normal state by
the common GIC CPU PM exit callback when the CPU wakes up.
