Thanks for sharing instructions as I now got some time to test and
deep dive into this feature. It looks like a pretty useful feature to
realize interrupt support in the secure world in its true sense. This
feature works for me as per your instructions.

I could recognise it's requirement from the time while I was playing
with secure timer interrupt support for OP-TEE RNG driver on
Developerbox. In that case I had to strip down the secure interrupt
handler to a minimum that would just collect entropy and dump into the
secure buffer. But with asynchronous notifications support, I could
add more functionality like entropy health tests in the bottom half
instead of doing those health tests while retrieving entropy from the
secure world.

Given that, have you explored the possibility to leverage SGI rather
than a platform specific SPI for notifying the normal world? If it's
possible to leverage Architecture specific SGI for this purpose then I
think this feature will come automatically enabled for every platform
without the need to reserve a platform specific SPI.
