This is not what I meant. Exynos5260 contains 2 big cores (not 4) and 4
little cores. Are you sure that PMU register layout on Exynos5260
matches your equation?

I already have patches ready fixing GIC driver, just waiting for
3.15-rc1 to be released. Anyway, CPU topology in DT is mandatory and
Exynos4 device tree files need to be fixed to contain them. This needs
to be accounted for in any changes touching CPU topology related code.

SMP boot works fine on all four cores of Exynos 4412. Obiously
hot-(un)plug doesn't, but this is another issue.
