this was already part of Carlo's version of the SMP patches. I didn't
question this change (I simply assumed that it's relevant - I never
questioned "why" it was relevant) so far
however, that was until Linus Lüssing (CC'ed) investigated a
bug-report from Emiliano Ingrassia (also CC'ed). you can find his
results here: [0]
(tl;dr: kernel refuses to boot without this change when using a
slightly modified multi_v7_defconfig)

Linus even asked me to split this change out into a separate patch [1]
however, by the time I came back home Kevin already sent out the pull request

please let me know if
- we can keep the patches the way they are right now
- or if you want to separate this change into a separate patch
