U-boot on Jetson was locating the PSCI handling code at the top of RAM
and reserving it in the DT, but Xen was still relocating itself over it,
causing secondary CPU bringup to hang the board.

(This is an experimental u-boot, so it doesn't actually enforce the
security of the PSCI region yet, if it did I'd have expected a fault on
relocation instead of a hang on CPU up).
