Yes,

In the case where the stop-api support is found to be lacking, the
commit 785a12afdb4a ("powerpc/powernv/idle: Disable LOSE_FULL_CONTEXT
states when stop-api fails") disables deep states that lose hypervisor
context. Thus in this case, the offlined CPU will be put to some shallow
idle state.

If a shallow state ( < stop4 ) is being chosen for cpu hotplug, then :
1) this opal call is not required.
2) may not be supported.

Hence should call opal_slw_set_reg() only if a deep state chosen for
cpu hotplug.
