There is some benefit in leaving get_core_count() in the platform
code. For example, the SCU on Cortex-A15 doesn't expose the core count
register and we have to get it from somewhere else (for now from some
L2 cache controller register but in the future it may be hardcoded,
passed via FDT or simply trying to boot maxcpus).
