In linux kernel since version 3.10 (release Date: 2013-06-30)  
In SMP configuration cores can be configured as Halt-on-reset
or they could all start at same time. For Halt-on-reset, non
masters are parked until Master kicks them so they can start off
at designated entry point. For other case, all jump to common
entry point and spin wait for Master's signal.
