Yep, this is what I want to use. I want to use this MACRO to implement cpuidle_ops
for arm, but I dunno whether this is the correct direction. And I'd like to
reuse cpu_psci_cpu_init_idle() function in arch/arm64/kernel/psci.c to parse
the DT, but I'm not sure where to put cpu_psci_cpu_init_idle() so that can
be shared between arm and arm64. Also I noticed that there's a psci unification
work from Mark Rutland, does it make sense to put it in drivers/firmware/psci.c?

Thanks a lot,
