I mean that there are not additional dt node except for 'cpu' and 'psci' node.

I can't do because there are not any jtag connector.

I tested CPU0 on/off. When I turn on the CPU0, I fail it. But, kernel just show the error log without lockup.
I gave you wrong infromation about CPU0 off.

[test result of CPU0 on/off on Linux 4.0-rc2]
root@localhost:~# echo 0 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/online
[ 420.965435] IRQ1 no longer affine to CPU0
[ 420.965439] IRQ2 no longer affine to CPU0
[ 4631.194227] CPU0: shutdown
root@localhost:~# echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpu0/online
[ 1164.601644] CPU0: failed to come online
-bash: echo: write error: Input/output error

As I experienced, Exynos SoC could not turn off the CPU0 (boot cpu).
I think that we may need the hidden information of Exynos5433 from Exynos5433 architector.

Could you give me a tip how to check the kernel at EL2 or EL1?
