Yes, sorry, I will fix that.

Nope, I will update this line too (bad copy-paste from
sunxi/headsmp.S...)

Sure, this name is fine for me.

I can do it in this series but I do not have any shmobile platforms so
I will not be able to test my modifications (only compilation).

If someone can test it for me (who?), it is okay for me to refactor this
code :)
