Even though we expect only master core to execute U-Boot code
let's make sure even if for some reason slave cores attempt to
execute U-Boot in parallel with master they get halted very early.

If platform wants it may kick-start slave cores before passing control
to say Linux kernel or any other application that want to see all cores
of SMP SoC up and running.
