You could test it by just swapping the order of "smp_init" and
"check_bugs()" in init/main.c.

However, to do that I suspect you need to disable the MTRR code, which had
some code in check_bugs (strange place).

In fact, if you had the MTRR config option enabled, first try a kernel
with that disabled, and once you've tried that please just try the
check_bugs/smp_init order change.
