this is just an RFC and it builds but no further tests have been done on
it. The first patch is a trivial cleanup and can go in.

For the second one I opted to look at c->x86_vendor in cpu/common.c
which is not very clean but still simpler than adding a miscellaneous
struct to contain the ->run_on_bsp() pointer and be statically allocated
as __initdata, in the cpu_dev fashion. We can always do that later if
there's more ofthe similar functionality needed.

Hmm, so please take a look and let me know if this is going in the right
