Thanks Olof. Russell, are you ok with the patchset in its current form?
I can start moving the firmware interface out of arch/arm if that's what
you want (there is no user outside of ARM at the moment, but as Olof
pointed out that's not too much code) but I'd really like to see this
series secured for 3.14.
