  Description     : "secure world" software for Allwinner SoCs
 The "secure world" on arm64 machines is a special level of CPU
 privilege that is hidden from the normal OS, and has complete
 control over the system.  It provides both initialization during
 early boot stages (before u-boot or EFI) and system monitor
 functionality once the machine is booted up.  This is an equivalent
 of Intel ME on x86.
 .
 This package is a fork of the ATF specific to 64-bit Allwinner
 devices, such as Pine64 and Pinebook.

Note that vanilla ATF is ITP #881620; the Allwinner fork might or might
not be incorporated there in the future.
