I asked about this on a previous version of the patches but the comment
was only clarified in the map_gicc_mpidr() function (which duplicates
the packing here). This is not the real MPIDR but the one passed from
ACPI tables, so bits 24-31 are 0.

Anyway, as I posted here:

http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux.acpi.devel/73422

I think this function should go. I don't see the point of MPIDR packing
just because we can't use a proper 64-bit type here.
