I am fine with it. Do we have any example which we can point him to?

I am fine with it. The key point is to have these sort it out because I
see that a lot of drivers just simply call that SMCs from drivers which
is IMHO wrong.


BTW: I see you have added soc id reading which you are saying is the
part of smcc v1.2 but I can't see any implementation in TF-A. Is this
spec publicly available?

Thanks,
Michal
