Subject[RFC PATCH 1/3] Documentation: dt: keystone: ti-sci: Add optional host-id parameter
Texas Instrument's System Control Interface (TISCI) permits the
ability for Operating Systems to running in virtual machines to be
able to independently communicate with the firmware without the need
going through an hypervisor.

The "host-id" in effect is the hardware representation of the
host (example: VMs locked to a core) as identified to the System

This is introduced as an optional parameter to maintain consistency
with legacy device tree blobs.

We call this with a vendor prefix to prevent any possible confusion
with SCSI ID (m68k) kernel option.
