[PATCHv6] ARM: dts: add exynos5422-cpus.dtsi to correct cpu order

In my opinion since its something configurable by the board and not
SoC specific it should be defined (or re-defined) on the board dts.
If one makes a 5422 board booting from A15's that patch will be
already invalid and causing the issue that it fixes.
