I have some ideas to fix this. Unfortunately it will be inefficient
as spinlock.h can be included from modules too :( I was thinking we can
implement dsb_sev in the proc-*.S functions for the unoptimized multi-arm

The only way we can fix that is do smp_on_up style rewriting of the assembly
during init between CPUv6 and v6K. Want me to do a patch for that?
For the defconfigs, I have a branch where I occasionally compile all
the old removed defconfigs too. And I believe Kevin test compiles various
