bootwrapper: CPU hotplug aware boot protocolHEADmaster
To enable CPU hotplug the need to provide some boot code at the reset vector and which survives after the kernel has booted without being overwritten. We achieve this by the getting the linker script to place the code in boot.S at address zero. This now means we can delete the code that relocates the secondary CPU pen code to "a location less likely to be overridden". We then modify the boot protocol slightly to allow hot-plugging of any CPU, including CPU #0, when the system is already booted. This is done by checking if SYS_FLAGS is already set before the normal check for CPU0 and the boot-or-wait decision made. This patch is based on work by Nicolas Pitre.
