Interesting, which platform are you using this on ? SCPI is deprecated for
a while, please switch to SCMI which is well maintained both in terms of
specification and support in the kernel. I also assume this is 64-bit
platform, so I don't want you to get stuck in future because of lack
of some feature in SCPI. Please see if you can migrate to SCMI.

I think we don't see to make it complex. Can't it be as simple as:



diff --git i/drivers/firmware/arm_scpi.c w/drivers/firmware/arm_scpi.c
