These should be all __cpuinit.

In general SRAT has a hotplug memory bit so it's possible
to predict how much memory there will be in advance. Since
the overhead of the kernel page tables should be very
low I would prefer if you just used instead.

(i.e. instead of extending the kernel mapping preallocate
the direct mapping and just clear the P bits)

That should be much simpler.
