Hi,

+CC Łukasz Majewski (u-boot)

The patch actually covers u-boot. What is missing:
1, Reset - I think kernel does not set it.
2. LPA - There is no mainline support for it yet so I did not add it.
It should be added along with cpuidle LPA.
3. MCPM and Exynos542x stuff. There are some exceptions and weird
comments in the kernel (like "To increase the stability of KFC reset
we need to program the PMU SPARE3 register"). It would take me some
more time to understand it so I wanted to start with basic version and
get comments.

Best regards,
Krzysztof
