Hi All,

As mentioned by Marc and Mark usage of the implementation defined
registers is not generally safe, they can't be used in virtualized
environments or when EL3 already uses the same registers. This is
probably the last attempt to get this upstream, I added an additional
property to the CPU device nodes to be set explicitly when using these
registers is safe and desired.


Changes since v3:
- Add edac-enabled property to make EDAC support optional

Changes since v2:
- drop usage of virtual dt node (Robh)
- use read_sysreg_s instead of open coded variant (James Morse)
- separate error retrieving from error reporting
- use smp_call_function_single rather than smp_call_function_single_async
- make driver single instance and register all 'cpu' hierarchy up front once

Changes since v1:
- Split dt-binding into separate patch
- Sort local function variables in reverse-xmas tree order
- drop unnecessary comparison and make variable bool
