Subject: [GIT PULL] arm64: fixes for -rc2

Hi Linus,

A few arm64 fixes came in this week, specifically fixing some nasty
truncation of return values from firmware calls and resolving a VM_BUG_ON
due to accessing uninitialised struct pages corresponding to NOMAP pages.
Details in the tag.

Please pull, thanks.
