exynos_smc(SMC_CMD_CPU1BOOT, ...) is cpu hotplug SMC interface.
Exynos4212 is dual core processor.
Exynos4212 only have to boot cpu1 on smp boot.
So, Second parameter of exynos_smc is fixed by 0 which means cpu1.
It don't need to boot another cpu (ex. cpu2, cpu3 for quad core processor).
But In case of quad core processor (ex. Exynos4412),
It need to boot another cpu and specify parameter of booting core.
As I know, Exynos3250 is dual core.
So It can be included 1st condition too.

Sangbeom,
Thanks,
