So it seems my initial debugging report was, err, incomplete. I failed to
notice that the amd_apic_timer_broken function was getting called twice,
once for each core.

The second call shows this:

MSR_K8_ENABLE_C1E == 0x14c14015

which causes our ENABLE_C1E_MASK check to be true and thus properly
return 1 from the function. So when we call the above function from
init_amd we prolly need to do a

set_bit(X86_FEATURE_LAPIC_TIMER_BROKEN, c->x86_capability);

for each core if any of them happen to return true upon checking for a
broken timer.

Andi, does that seem right?
