[PATCH v7 0/4] ARM SMC Calling Convention interface

This patch set is based on the Generic TEE subsystem v6 patchset
(https://lwn.net/Articles/662495/) sent out a some time ago. By isolating
the ARM SMC Calling Convention patches that are useful for other purposes
than to support the Generic TEE subsystem some complexity is removed from
that patch set.

This patch set adds a common interface to do an SMC or HVC following ARM
SMC Calling Convention. The interface is implemented for both the arm and
arm64 architectures and updates the PSCI driver to use this interface
instead for firmware communication.

Kevins previous Tested-by tag isn't included as the changes in the config
variables may affect some of the builds.

* Use shift macros for all fields supplied to ARM_SMCCC_CALL_VAL()
* Move "select HAVE_ARM_SMCCC if CPU_V7" from "select HAVE_ARM_SMCCC if CPU_V7"
* arm: "config ARM_PSCI" now depends on HAVE_ARM_SMCCC instead of CPU_V7

* Move HAVE_ARM_SMCCC from init/Kconfig

* Fixes compile errors for Thumb-2 kernels reported by Kevin Hilman
* drivers: psci: replace psci firmware calls

* Rebased on v4.4-rc3 to resolve a PSCI conflict
* drivers: psci: replace psci firmware calls

* Moved the export of arm_smccc_{smc,hvc} to armksyms.c for both arm and arm64
* arm: add implementation for arm-smccc

* arm64: add implementation for arm-smccc
  drivers: psci: replace psci firmware calls
  Acked-by: Will Deacon <will.deacon at arm.com>

* Added unwinding support in the assembly functions
