The risk is probably low enough to try to use PSCI even on platform not 
supporting it.

Although, it might be worth to check if EL3 is present to avoid 
panicking again and again on XGene.

The ACPI code in Xen is based on the first ACPI implementation in Linux. 
So it is quite possible you encountered the bug there :).

In theory yes, but the code is also catering some interesting/weird 
platforms behavior:
    1) There are (were?) platform where CNTFREQ was not set correctly
    2) Some platforms, such as the one with Exynos 5, (used to?) require 
specific code to enable the arch timer.

We are still using the Arndale for automated testing. So we would need 
to keep the hacks.

But it would be possible to rework the code and try to make the timer 
available earlier for well-behaved platforms.

Cheers,
