To be clarify keembay_sd_voltage_selection function as Michal's prefers is actually using the firmware driver. This function located in firmware driver.
I will call this func during voltage switching from arasan controller. I believe this implementation require DT to specify the compatible name and method use either smc/hvc.

Are you saying that by using simple smcc based function library I should call below func() in arasan controller. For example
1) arm_smccc_get_version(void)
2) arm_smccc_version_init(arm_smccc_get_version(), SMCCC_CONDUIT_SMC);
3) arm_smccc_1_1_invoke(KEEMBAY_SET_SD_VOLTAGE_FUNC_ID, voltage_value , &res);

Please advices.
Thanks
