Manfred found and fixed one bug, but that was newly added in mm2.


DEBUG_PAGEALLOC switches to nopentium mode: otherwise a change_page_attr
could cause a split of a 4 MB page, which could cause a gfp which might
deadlock.

Two parts of the cpu initialization cannot be done early: the f00f bug
workaround needs a working paging setup, and loops_per_jiffies is only
initialized after the timer is running. And everything in setup_arch instead
of before start_kernel: The first printk line should be the "Linux verion xy"
line from start_kernel.
