Hmm, the op-tee itself must keep secure, but the psci part in it can be 
extracted to public, although it may have a bit of secure risk.
Due to Rockchip have amended the frame of op-tee to support psci, we can 
try to upstream these changes to official op-tee or push them to source 
codes of Rockchip in git-hub.
