Is this a "default" on newer platforms only? Why do the existing
platforms not use the "secure" setup then? Or is this perhaps firmware
version/configuration specific?

Basically I'm confused because you say that the "default" is the secured
setup, but DT patch (8/8) suggests that non-secure is the default on
pretty much all currently supported platforms (msm8916, sdm845, sm8150,
sm8250, sm8350). :)

Thanks,
Stephan
