kvm ptp targets to provide high precision time sync between guest
and host in virtualization environment. This patch enable kvm ptp
for arm64.
This patch set base on [1][2][3]

change log:
from v6 to v7:
        (1) include the omited clocksource_id.h in last version.
        (2) reorder the header file in patch.
        (3) refine some words in commit message to make it more impersonal.
from v5 to v6:
        (1) apply Mark's patch[4] to get SMCCC conduit.
        (2) add mechanism to recognize current clocksource by add
clocksouce_id value into struct clocksource instead of method in patch-v5.
        (3) rename kvm_arch_ptp_get_clock_fn into
kvm_arch_ptp_get_crosststamp.

from v4 to v5:
        (1) remove hvc delay compensasion as it should leave to userspace.
        (2) check current clocksource in hvc call service.
        (3) expose current clocksource by adding it to
system_time_snapshot.
        (4) add helper to check if clocksource is arm_arch_counter.
        (5) rename kvm_ptp.c to ptp_kvm_common.c
from v3 to v4:
        (1) fix clocksource of ptp_kvm to arch_sys_counter.
        (2) move kvm_arch_ptp_get_clock_fn into arm_arch_timer.c
        (3) subtract cntvoff before return cycles from host.
        (4) use ktime_get_snapshot instead of getnstimeofday and
get_current_counterval to return time and counter value.
        (5) split ktime and counter into two 32-bit block respectively
to avoid Y2038-safe issue.
        (6) set time compensation to device time as half of the delay of
hvc call.
        (7) add ARM_ARCH_TIMER as dependency of ptp_kvm for
arm64.

from v2 to v3:
        (1) fix some issues in commit log.
        (2) add some receivers in send list.

from v1 to v2:
        (1) move arch-specific code from arch/ to driver/ptp/
        (2) offer mechanism to inform userspace if ptp_kvm service is
available.
        (3) separate ptp_kvm code for arm64 into hypervisor part and
guest part.
        (4) add API to expose monotonic clock and counter value.
        (5) refine code: remove no necessary part and reconsitution.

Jianyong Wu (6):
  psci: let arm_smccc_1_1_invoke available by modules
  ptp: Reorganize ptp_kvm modules to make it arch-independent.
  time: Add mechanism to recognize clocksource in time_get_snapshot
  psci: Add hvc call service for ptp_kvm.
  ptp: arm64: Enable ptp_kvm for arm64
  kvm: arm64: Add capability check extension for ptp_kvm

Mark Rutland (1):
  arm/arm64: smccc/psci: add arm_smccc_1_1_get_conduit()
