But then we miss out on all the good stuff happening in setup_arch since
smp_processor_id() isn't set in cpu_online_map until smp_prepare_boot_cpu. I
can try upping it in arch code, but iirc, I had problems with that in older
kernels due to the expectations of some of the other CPU upping code. I'll
give it a try again and either give you a good answer or send a more
appropriate patch to David.
