This API is meant for any platform specific operations which needs to be managed by firmware. Firmware will always validate the request for action being performed.

Are there any pending patchsets that make use of the ioctl interface
besides the debugfs piece? None of the ones in this pull request
(besides the debugfs) seems to call into it.

It might just be easier to leave it out until you have a use case for
it. The rest of the patchset looks fine to me, and I'd be happy to
take it. Once you have a need for it we can discuss specifics.
