This is just an old, internal patch that was not going to be upstreamed.
I just posted another series yesterday[1], hopefully doing it the right
way. Looking forward for review comments.

Yes, I fully agree. Fortunately that was not supposed to hit upstream.

You've done a lot of great work to refactor this driver (thanks!), which
made it possible to support Exynos secure firmware in a sane way and
this is how it should be done.
