Subject[PATCH v2 0/5] ARM: SMP: support Broadcom mobile SoCs
Date
This series adds SMP support for two Broadcom mobile SoC families.
It uses CPU_METHOD_OF_DECLARE() (or rather a new variant of that)
so that SMP operations are assigned using device tree rather than
adding it to a machine definition in a board file.

The first patch adds the ability to extract information from device
tree nodes having a matching "enable-method" value. This allows
additional parameters to be associated with the enable method. This
is used for the Broadcom SoCs to efficiently determine the location
of a special register used in coordinating the start of secondary
CPUs.

I have not included a device tree document update here; I would like
suggestions on where the new enable method and its parameter should
be documented. (I presume in .../arm/cpus.txt, but that could get
out of hand as more boards define new enable methods.)

-Alex

Note:
This series is based on v3.15-rc1, plus one more recently-posted patch:

History
v2: - Fixed a Makefile error (:= should have been +=)
- No longer set CONFIG_NR_CPUS in bcm_defconfig
- Rebased onto v3.15-rc1
