Okay, I'll check only once and make sure the node is "okay".

I'll do the check during the first call to an SMC caller, I wouldn't
want to pollute the OMAP generic init code for something that is only
called on HS platforms, plus these SMC calls are rare (only 3 calls
during boot of AM57x for instance) so performance is not critical, so I
don't want to do anything fancy like code patching :), I'll just use a flag.

Thanks,
Andrew
