I don't know technical details about CPU boot-up on Exynos3250 as I
haven't worked too much with this platform. According to my conversation
with Krzysztof, he found S5P_CORE_AUTOWAKEUP_EN and dsb_sev() to be not
needed. Instead S5P_CORE_WAKEUP_FROM_LOCAL_CFG can be set in
EXYNOS_ARM_CORE1_STATUS and then normal arch_send_wakeup_ipi_mask()
used. He might be able to provide more details.

I believe Krzysztof was first with this kind of patch and I'd prefer his
approach as it introduces less changes. (First version posted on 15.05
[1], with my comments addressed in v2.)

IMHO, there is no significant difference between those two. Both are
bad, because they bind quirks to specific SoCs and it's hard to reuse
them for new ones - every time a quirk is reused by a new SoC, a new (||
soc_is_xxx() or || of_machine_is_compatible("xxx")) must be added.
