Pulled and rebased my self-probing and GICv3 ACPI support patches on
top of it, tested on FVP and QEMU, booted OK, for this patch set,

Tested-by: Hanjun Guo <hanjun.guo at linaro.org>

I will sync with Suravee to prepare a single patch for
ACPI self-probing, GICv2m and GICv3 support.

Thank you for putting thing together!
