Thats the maximum number of threads per core that we have had on POWER
so far.

Perhaps, I can make this

struct paca_struct **thread_sibling_pacas;

and allocate threads_per_core number of slots in
pnv_init_idle_states. Sounds ok ?

I wasn't aware of SPRN_TIR!

I can check this. If my reading of the ISA is correct, TIR should
contain the thread number which are in the range [0..3].
