After updating to ATF v2.5 on the Xilinx ZynqMP platform, I was having issues with the FPGA PL logic not loading successfully from U-Boot, it was failing with this error:
PL FPGA LOAD failed with err: 0x000007d6
which is PM_RET_ERROR_TIMEOUT. The following commit introduced the timeout:

The timeout value (TIMEOUT_COUNT_US) is set to 0x4000 (16384) usec, which appears to be too short for the FPGA loading operation (at least on the ZCU102 board with XCZU9EG device), causing it to always timeout. Increasing the timeout to 0xF4240 usec (i.e. 1 second) fixes the issue, though some lower value may also be sufficient.
