This is a bit confusing. I think you should just refer to the fact that
the architecture requires HVC calls to be handled at EL2, and when
emulating EL2 inside the VM, HVC calls from the VM are handled by the VM
itself, and therefore we add the support for SMC as the conduit for PSCI
calls.

That's only a necessary, but not sufficient requirement. So we should
say, it may be a PSCI call or we check if it's a PSCI call...
