Subject: [PATCH 34/39] arm64: psci: Ignore DENIED CPUs

From: Jean-Philippe Brucker <jean-philippe@...aro.org>

When a CPU is marked as disabled, but online capable in the MADT, PSCI
applies some firmware policy to control when it can be brought online.
PSCI returns DENIED to a CPU_ON request if this is not currently
permitted. The OS can learn the current policy from the _STA enabled bit.

Handle the PSCI DENIED return code gracefully instead of printing an
error.

See https://developer.arm.com/documentation/den0022/f/?lang=en page 58.
