The Kconfig stuff should be more understandable to "normal" users 
configuring the kernel.  Hence it might make more sense for Xen to 
select PSCI rather than making it a prerequisite.

I still don't understand why you need to do this.  Why can't you just 
rely on the next priority which is to set PSCI ops by default if 
available?  Using this hook for Xen doesn't look justified. As it is, 
you break MCPM.

As I explained to you, MCPM will end up using PSCI as well when 
available, which I think should be sufficient for your concern.
