The document above is correct, but a little bit too low level. The
bootscc.sh script, which is in the tools/scc directory will do all the
required booting steps for you (exactly those listed in the tech note).
Telling the CPU driver to boot other cores works through a commandline
argument to spawnd, as explained in my last email. It's the standard
process in Barrelfish to boot other cores.
