        or r12=r12,r14;         /* make sp a kernel virtual address */
        or r13=r13,r14;         /* make `current' a kernel virtual address */

In the case of swapper on cpu0, it calculates wrong address.
If address of swapper on cpu0 is a000000100634000, this macro
sets r13 to e000000100634000.
