I would expect that instead of of

if (arm_smccc_get_version() < ARM_SMCCC_VERSION_1_2)
return 0;

if (arm_smccc_1_1_get_conduit() == SMCCC_CONDUIT_NONE) {
pr_err("%s: invalid SMCCC conduit\n", __func__);


you will simply call

...(check ret)

arm_smccc_1_2_invoke(ARM_SMCCC_ARCH_SOC_ID, 0, &res);
...(check ret)

where it is clear from 1_2 that it has to be at least 1.2 version.

I will read it and take a look when I have time.
