ARC: [plat-eznps] Update the init sequence of aux regs per cpu.
This commit add new configuration that enables us to distinguish between building the kernel for platforms that have a different set of auxiliary registers for each cpu and platforms that have a shared set of auxiliary registers across every thread in each core. On platforms that implement a different set of auxiliary registers disabling this configuration insures that we initialize registers on every cpu and not just for the first thread of the core. Example for non shared registers is working with EZsim (non silicon) Signed-off-by: Liav Rehana <liavr@mellanox.com> Signed-off-by: Noam Camus <noamca@mellanox.com> Signed-off-by: Vineet Gupta <vgupta@synopsys.com>

+ On the real chip of the NPS, auxiliary registers are shared between
