There is actually one GIC per cluster and SPIs are used to hook the clusters
together for use as IPIs, so with this patch one cluster may be booted (using
the standard SGIs still works within each cluster).

Have a modified GIC driver to run all clusters, but this patch is a bit to
invasive to submit at the moment...
