I'd suggest you also include in your series the patch I posted earlier 
providing a runtime mdesc->smp_init method as well.  This way the 
priority order would be:

- If mdesc->smp_init is non null then use that.

- Otherwise, if PSCI is available then use that.

- Otherwise use mdesc->smp.

This way, if the PSCI default has to be overriden (like in the MCPM case 
because it needs to wrap PSCI itself, or to cover Rob's concern) then 
this can be achieved at run time on a per mdesc basis.
