Could be, but I checked the current APIs, ONLY these 2 will be used in Linux kernel, so
I ONLY add these 2 APIs for now.

However, after rethink, maybe we should add another imx_sc_rpc API for those special
APIs? To avoid checking it for all the APIs called which may impact some performance.
Still under discussion, if you have better idea, please advise, thanks!
