Put the N_TI_WL into a staging header, and bump the number of ldiscs as a
separate non staging patch - we should probably simply bump it a bit
anyway to leave room for experimental work using a built kernel image.
There is no requirement that the number of ldiscs matches up to the last
ldisc assigned.
