Thanks. Your patch did not build, because ARM_BE() isn't defined
anywhere in coherency_ll.S. I've fixed this by using an ifdef
CONFIG_CPU_BE8_BOOT_LE (updated patch attached), and now the secondary
CPUs boot fine.

That said, I still haven't fixed my userspace, so I could only verify
that the kernel boots, not more.
