As mentioned on the patch adding __pa_function(), I'd prefer to keep the
whatever->phys conversion separate from the CFI removal, since we have a
number of distinct virtual address ranges with differing conversions to
phys, and I don't think it's clear that __pa_function() only works for
kernel symbols (rather than module addresses, linear map addresses,
etc).

Other than that, I'm happy in principle with wrapping this. I suspect
that for clarity we should add an intermediate variable, e.g.

| phys_addr_t pa_cpu_resume = pa_symbol(function_nocfi(cpu_resume));
| return psci_ops.cpu_suspend(power_state, pa_cpu_resume)

Thanks,
Mark.
