[PATCH v6 00/25] x86: Enhance MTRR functionality to support multiple CPUs

At present MTRRs are mirrored to the secondary CPUs only once, as those
CPUs are started up. But U-Boot may add more MTRRs later, e.g. if it
decides that a video console must be set up.

This series enhances the x86 multi-processor support to allow MTRRs to
be updated at any time. It also updates the 'mtrr' command to support
setting the MTRRs on CPUs other than the boot CPU.

Changes in v6:
- Rebase to x86/master

Changes in v5:
- Drop timing in mp_park_aps()

Changes in v4:
- Update get_bsp() to return zero when SMP is not inited
- Add a Kconfig to control this feature, enabled only on APL
- Only enable this feature of CONFIG_SMP_AP_WORK is enabled
- Allow running on the BSP if SMP is not enabled
- Update mp_next_cpu() to stop if CONFIG_SMP_AP_WORK is not enabled

Changes in v3:
- Update bsp_do_flight_plan() to say 'on the BSP'
- s/slow/slot/
- Use C code instead of assembler to read/write callback pointers
- Update commit message to mention dropping of cpu_map
- Rename flag to GD_FLG_SMP_READY
- Rename flag to GD_FLG_SMP_READY
- Add a comment to run_ap_work()
- Rename flag to GD_FLG_SMP_READY
- Update the comment for run_ap_work() to explain logical_cpu_number
- Clarify meaning of @cpu_select in mp_run_on_cpus() comment
- Update the comment for mp_park_aps()
- Add more comments on how the iterators work
- Mention that the CPU number is in hex
- Remove stray asterisk from comments
- Drop mention of cpu_map which was handled in a previous patch

Changes in v2:
- Add comments to explain what start_aps() does
- Drop change to include/dm/uclass.h
- Mention error return in get_bsp()
- Add more comments
- Rename mtrr_save_all() to mtrr_read_all()
- Add a new patch to avoid enabling SMP in SPL
- Add new patch to add AP_DEFAULT_BASE to coral's memory map
- Rename function to mtrr_write_all()
- Keep things building by temporarily renaming the function in cmd/
- Drop the renamed mtrr_set_valid_() instead of mtrr_set_valid()
- Add a new patch with more comments
