The iROM will check the GPIO pin to select which core is run as cpu0.
I think no one will change the GPIO pin if a new board which is based
on exynos5422 :)

In this situation, all exynos5422 boards(odroid xu3 series and mobile
phone) have same cpu configurations. If we move the exynos5420 cpu
configuration from exynos5420.dtsi, we should change all dts which
I think we'd better to defer the change until a new exynos5422 board
which has different cpu configurations is added.
