Subject: [PATCH 00/19] Introduce ACPI for ARM64 based on ACPI 5.1

ACPI 5.1 was released [1] and it fixed some major gaps to run ACPI
on ARM, this patch just follow the ACPI 5.1 spec and prepare the
code to run ACPI on ARM64.

ACPI 5.1 has some major changes for the following tables and
method which are essential for ARM platforms:

1) MADT table updates.
New fields were introduced to cover MPIDR and virtualization in
GICC, and introduce GICR and GIC MSI frame structure to cover
GICv3 and GICv2m (this patch set only cover GICv2).

2) FADT updates for PSCI
New fields were introduced to cover PSCI and ACPI can use psci
to boot SMP and other PSCI related functions.

GTDT was updated to support arch timer, memory-mapped tiemr,
SBSA watchdog timer, in this patch, only arch timer tested on
Juno board, so only arch timer init is available.

4) _DSD
_DSD (Device Specific Data) will provide some key values which
presented by FDT before, it makes possible that some devices can
be emumerated in ACPI way, please refer to the document provided
in this patch set for detail.

This patch set is the ARM64 ACPI core patches covered MADT, FADT
and GTDT, _DSD is not covered in this patch set. We first introduce
acpi.c and its related head file which are needed by ACPI core, and
then get RSDP to extract all the ACPI boot-time tables.

When all the boot-time tables (FADT, MADT, GTDT) are ready, then
parse them to init the sytem when booted. Specifically, 
a) we use FADT to init PSCI and use PSCI to boot SMP;
b) Use MADT for GIC init and SMP init;
c) GTDT for arch timer init.

This patch set is based on the former ACPICA patches I sent, and I
already compiled it OK with:
a) each patch applied on ARM64 with CONFIG_ACPI=y;
b) CONFIG_ACPI=n on ARM64;
c) CONFIG_ACPI=y on x86.

Also this patch set was tested by Graeme on ARM64 Juno platform, it
boot successfully with ACPI only (no device tree).
