Hi Tony,

Looks like the TI quirk idea is not moving forward, even the QCOM quirk
looks like it may get kicked out. arm_smccc_smc() will remain only for
SMCCC compliant calls, but it looks like a generic arm_smc() wouldn't be
too opposed upstream.

Either way this patch would still be valid as when OP-TEE is present
then arm_smccc_smc() will be the right call to make, how we handle the
legacy calls can be sorted out later if a generic SMC call is implemented.
