I will need RMKs blessing since he reviewed the ASM code.

Also need work out how to line this up. Typically I use to get
driver/memory patches via Greg's driver-core but this is more
PM code than memory driver and very SOC specific.

Hi Arnd/Olof,
Will you be ok to pull this via arm-soc ? There is also follow
up platform PM code and DTS series which will make use of this.
