[PATCH 0/5] arm64: Initial support for Marvell Armada 7K/8K

This series adds initial support for the new Armada 7K and 8K Marvell
64 bits processors. Details about those processors based on the
Cortex-A72 can be found at:


One characteristic of those processors is that internally they are
built from several components:

 - One "AP", which contains the processor itself and a few core IP
   blocks. The AP in 7K and 8K is called AP806, and is available on
   two variants: dual Cortex-A72 and quad Cortex-A72.

 - Or or two "CP", which contains most of the I/Os (SATA, PCIe,
   etc.). The CP in 7K and 8K is called CP110. One CP110 is available
   in the 7K family, while two CP110 are available in the 8K family,
   doubling the number of I/O interfaces.

The support added in this series only brings minimal support for the
AP side (and not yet all IP blocks, obviously). Support for the CP
part will come in the future.

Since the series touches similar files as the Armada 3700 series from
Gregory Clement, it is based on it.
