    This function exists only for i386. Today for smp suspend they are using
    cpu hotplug code, but since i386 startup code is not like
    true smp bringup, so there is this hack to prepare something before calling

    This is just to provide a default implementation, in the case arch
    doesnt provide a smp_prepare_cpu().

    Hope i answered the right question, unless you have something subtle here :-(
