ARM: kernel: add device tree init map function

When booting through a device tree, the kernel cpu logical id map can be
initialized using device tree data passed by FW or through an embedded blob.

This patch adds a function that parses device tree "cpu" nodes and
retrieves the corresponding CPUs hardware identifiers (MPIDR).
It sets the possible cpus and the cpu logical map values according to
the number of CPUs defined in the device tree and respective properties.

The device tree HW identifiers are considered valid if all CPU nodes contain
a "reg" property, there are no duplicate "reg" entries and the DT defines a
CPU node whose "reg" property matches the MPIDR[23:0] of the boot CPU.

The primary CPU is assigned cpu logical number 0 to keep the current convention

Current bindings documentation is included in the patch:

* ARM CPUs binding description
The device tree allows to describe the layout of CPUs in a system through
the "cpus" node, which in turn contains a number of subnodes (ie "cpu")
defining properties for every cpu.
Bindings for CPU nodes follow the ePAPR standard, available from:
For the ARM architecture every CPU node must contain the following properties:
- device_type: must be "cpu"
- reg: property matching the CPU MPIDR[23:0] register bits
reg[31:24] bits must be set to 0
- compatible: should be one of:
cpus {
#size-cells = <0>;
#address-cells = <1>;
CPU0: cpu@0 {
device_type = "cpu";
compatible = "arm,cortex-a15";
reg = <0x0>;
CPU1: cpu@1 {
device_type = "cpu";
compatible = "arm,cortex-a15";
reg = <0x1>;
CPU2: cpu@100 {
device_type = "cpu";
compatible = "arm,cortex-a7";
reg = <0x100>;
CPU3: cpu@101 {
device_type = "cpu";
compatible = "arm,cortex-a7";
reg = <0x101>;
