The DTB additions alone _should_ be sufficient.

You _should not_ need to add any platform code to use PSCI.
However, if you have existing platform code which pokes the hardware
logically owned by your FW PSCI implementation, you need to ensure that
this code doesn't poke that hardware when PSCI is in use.
