'__pa_swapper_pg_dir' here is read with the MMU off, but you write it with the
MMU on. To make this safe, you need to clean this value to the 'PoC' each time
you write it, so that secondaries here will read the new value.

Please put __pa_swapper_pg_dir in the mmuoff.data.read section, this ensures
hibernate will re-clean this value to the PoC once it has restored the memory.

__enable_mmu() is now taking arguments in x25 and x26. Please update the comment
above it that describes the 'x0' argument.

Why do you pass the idmap ttbr value in too? Its always the same.

See the definition of 'secondary_holding_pen_release' for an example of how to
put this in the mmuoff.data.read section.

This write needs to be cleaned to the PoC, see write_pen_release() for an example.
