I suggest to merge both into mtk_scp.c and commonize/generalize functions inside
of there as much as possible... including the removal of #if IS_ENABLED(...)
macro usages, as you can simply check that during runtime by setting a bool
variable to true when it's dual-core.

Let's do this first step.
I'll give you a more exhaustive review on v2, when this main step is done.
