Please look at commit 0f37247574b3 that is queued for merge in 4.1.
It adds the required compatibility strings to KVM, so Mark is perfectly
right to ask you to drop this "cortex-a15-gic" from your DT.

This DT won't be merged before 4.1 anyway, so there is no point trying
to make it work with older kernels.

Thanks,

M.
