    Subject[PATCH] Double x86 initialise fix.
    For many moons, we've been executing identify_cpu()
    on the boot processor twice on SMP kernels.
    This is harmless, but has a few downsides..
    - Extra cruft in bootlog/dmesg
    - Spawns one too many timers for the mcheck handler
    - possibly other wasteful things..

    This seems to do the right thing here..
