[PATCH v3 0/5] arm64: Initial Realtek RTD1295 enablement

This mini-series adds initial support for the Realtek RTD1295 SoC and
the Zidoo X9S TV box.

v3 changes #address-cells, #size-cells and ranges.

With these patches CPU0 can be booted with earlycon.

PSCI doesn't work despite present in the vendor device tree; as enable-method
it instead used a custom "rtk-spin-table" that I sadly have no source code of.

The UARTs use a custom interrupt controller that I again lack source code of;
with interrupts = <GIC_SPI 41 IRQ_TYPE_LEVEL_HIGH> it can boot into an initrd.

The boot process is slightly twisted: The files need to be loaded from a
32-bit U-Boot, then boot into 64-bit U-Boot where the kernel can be booted.
Similar to my previous Amlogic S905 work, the TEXT_OFFSET poses a problem, so
a uImage needs to be used (or the kernel patched) for load address 0x00280000.
I haven't succeeded loading an initrd via bootm/booti; but as quick workaround
initrd=$rootfs_loadaddr,0x$filesize can manually be specified in $bootargs.
