It will be easy,  if I could have expanded the store room. But these code is the infrastructure for hypercall, I can't change them at my will.
I think only value but pointer can delivered by smccc_set_retval call.

IMO, I will be limited by the design of hypercall on arm64, I can only design my code under it. maybe it will be better sometime but for now I could just obey it.
