SubjectRe: [PATCH V3: Add Smp support for Allwinner A20. 1/3] Add smp support for Allwinner A20(sunxi 7i).
From
Hi  Maxime,
I have test it, but I found it does not work. If using
smp_prepare_cpus, the kernenl cannot find the secondary cpus because
that smp_prepare_cpus semms not be excuted before kernel is booting
secondary cpus. So I have to use early_initcall.

Fan.
