What's wrong with a few #defines for this? It obviously is well enough
defined in existing pre-v1.0 implementations as there is an existing
structure to the parameter.
Can we not do something like:
#define PSCI_POWER_STATE_ID(x) (x)
#define PSCI_POWER_STATE_TYPE_POWER_DOWN 0x000100000
#define PSCI_POWER_STATE_AFFINITY_LEVEL(x) ((x) << 24)
FTTC broadband for 0.8mile line: currently at 10.5Mbps down 400kbps up
according to speedtest.net.
