How about we don't decide now?

I can remove this patch from the series so that the core stuff can make
it into the arm64 tree ASAP (I think Catalin wants to queue something
early this week so that it can hit Linus' tree before the end of the
merge window), and then repost this single patch on its own (with fixes
for the things that Christoffer found in his review) after -rc1.

It leaves us time to haggle over the userspace ABI (which is
realistically not going to affect anyone), and we get the core stuff in
place for SoC vendors to start updating their firmware.

Thoughts?
