Subject[PATCH 17/23] [PATCH] x86_64: Let impossible CPUs point to reference per cpu data
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
------------------
Don't mark the reference per cpu data init data (so it stays
around after boot) and point all impossible CPUs to it. This way
they reference some valid - although shared memory. Usually
this is only initialization like INIT_LIST_HEADs and there
won't be races because these CPUs never run. Still somewhat hackish.
