Sorry for the short-cut... it is not really manadatory.

Today PSCI is required by the upstreamed Linux kernel on STM32MP15x 
Family to wake-up the secondary core and some other features (system 
reset / power-off).

STMicroelectronics decided to use the Power State Coordination Interface 
(PSCI) on all the STM32MP SoC (armv7 or armv8) even if PSCI it is only 
required in AArch64 for Embedded Base Boot Requirements (EBBR) Specification
