So it is only now that I noticed that we have both 'core.c' and 'uncore.c', which
is slightly bit confusing: the core.c's we have around the kernel denote core
subsystem functionality - not CPU core functionality. If we have uncore.c around,
confusion might ensue.

OTOH maybe it's not a big issue and we can just live with it. I'd hate to see
main.c. Maybe rename 'uncore.c' to 'cpu_uncore.c'? OTOH that sounds a bit silly
too. So maybe leave it as you named them.
