Sounds fair. I will report back, perhaps with a fix based on what I get to know.

But I think it is better to disable L0s in the SoC dtsi itself. That's not only
because there are patches to essentially disable L0s in 2 of the available
platforms making use of this Soc, but also you are enabling GIC ITS in the SoC
dtsi and that may affect sa8540p which is making use of this dtsi.

The users of that SoC may have not noticed the errors as you did before, but
enabling GIC ITS will certainly make the issue visible to them (more likely).

Also, if it turns out to be a hardware IP issue, then we can leave the patches
as it is, otherwise we can revert them easily.
