That's very useful feedback -- no, I hadn't ever tried this
configuration (presumably the compiler would have complained).

I've read through the v6 architecture reference manual (again) and
cannot find any place to store either a per_cpu_offset or even a small
processor id, which I didn't find surprising as I would have expected it
to already be used for this purpose.

I'll re-spin the changes making them conditional on !CONFIG_CPU_V6,
unless someone has an idea of how to identify the current core in a
multi-core ARMv6 system.
