[PATCH v3 0/4] Add Broadcom North Star 2 support

This patch series adds Broadcom North Star 2 (NS2) SoC support. NS2 is an ARMv8
based SoC and under the Broadcom iProc family.

Sorry for tying this with the Broadcom iProc PCIe driver fixes for ARM64. I
have to tie them together because iProc PCIe support is enabled by default
when ARCH_BCM_IPROC is enabled. Without the fixes in the iProc PCIe driver,
enabling CONFIG_ARCH_BCM_IPROC would break the build for arm64 defconfig. Let
me know if there's a better way to handle this.

This patch series is generated based on v4.2-rc2 and tested on Broadcom NS2 SVK

Code available on GITHUB: https://github.com/Broadcom/arm64-linux.git
branch is ns2-core-v3

Changes from V2:
- Drop hardcoded earlycon kernel command line paramter in NS2 SVK dts file
because 1) earlycon is a debugging feature that can be enabled in the
bootloader and should not be enabled by default in the board dts file and 2)
of_earlycon should be used and support should be added to 8250 DW driver

Changes from V1:
- Took Arnd's advice to tweak the location of struct pci_sys_data within
struct iproc_pcie. This helps to get rid of most of the CONFIG_ARM wrap in
iProc PCIe core driver
- Use stdout-path and alias for serial console in NS2 SVK dts
- Add all 4 CPU descriptions in NS2 dtsi
- Remove "clock-frequency" property in the armv8 timer node so timer frequency
can be determined based on readings from CNTFRQ_EL0
- Remove config flag ARCH_BCM_NS2. Leave only ARCH_BCM_IPROC for all Broadcom
arm64 SoCs as advised
