Subject: [PATCH 4.4 37/84] ARM: exynos: Fix undefined instruction during Exynos5422 resume

[ Upstream commit 4d8e3e951a856777720272ce27f2c738a3eeef8c ]

During early system resume on Exynos5422 with performance counters enabled
the following kernel oops happens:

    Internal error: Oops - undefined instruction: 0 [#1] PREEMPT SMP ARM

Undefined instruction is triggered during CP14 reset, because bits: #16
(Secure privileged invasive debug disabled) and #17 (Secure privileged
noninvasive debug disable) are set in DSCR. Those bits depend on SPNIDEN
and SPIDEN lines, which are provided by Secure JTAG hardware block. That
block in turn is powered from cluster 0 (big/Eagle), but the Exynos5422
boots on cluster 1 (LITTLE/KFC).

To fix this issue it is enough to turn on the power on the cluster 0 for
a while. This lets the Secure JTAG block to propagate the needed signals
to LITTLE/KFC cores and change their DSCR.
