The function PSCI on will call arch_set_info_guest directly with

Hmmm... right I was looking directly to do_vcpu_op, but we have an extra
layer on ARM (do_arm_vcpu_op).

In this case, I would return an error if VGCF_online is not set. I will
allow us to catch easily an error later if we decide to implement VCPUOP_up.
