Is there a way to programmatically determine from Linux if the necessary
bits are set?
Yes, from physical 0x7fff0700. I think we should test for the proper
bits to be set such as bit 12 which is absolutely needed for the code in
tc2_pm.c to work, and refuse to register the TC2 MCPM backend with a big
warning in the boot log to that effect otherwise. If Linux can flag
inproper firmware config that might help with issues like this one.

That would be interesting to know indeed.
