After some investigation of the code, it seems that it is pretty hard
to do so, the major gap to do that is DT needs the device node of CPU
to init CPUs, but ACPI just needs the logical CPU number. In DT mode,
it needs to search the DT and get the CPU device node to get its enable
method, but in ACPI mode, it is a flag to indicate the CPU enable (boot)
method.

the code can be modified as below, but the logic is the same:

diff --git a/arch/arm64/kernel/smp.c b/arch/arm64/kernel/smp.c
index 40f38f4..71a625b 100644
--- a/arch/arm64/kernel/smp.c
+++ b/arch/arm64/kernel/smp.c
@@ -320,6 +320,17 @@ void __init smp_init_cpus(void)
unsigned int i, cpu = 1;
bool bootcpu_valid = false;

+ if (!acpi_disabled) {
+ for_each_possible_cpu(cpu) {
+ if (cpu_read_ops(NULL, cpu) != 0)
+ continue;
+
+ cpu_ops[cpu]->cpu_init(NULL, cpu);
+ }
+
+ return;
+ }
+
while ((dn = of_find_node_by_type(dn, "cpu"))) {
const u32 *cell;
u64 hwid;
Does it make sense to you?

Thanks
Hanjun
