-v2: Split smp functionality into a different module

these are a bunch of fixes which correct the disabling of L3 cache
indexes. This is needed, for example, in the case when excessive
correctable L3 error rates are observed. In a later step, this
functionality will be connected to the mcheck mechanism and used to
evaluate occurring L3 tag and data array errors and then disable the
respective failing L3 cache regions in order to defer system failure
before a sysop can intervene.

Those patches are also good -stable candidates.
