SubjectRe: [patch 05/14] percpu: Use a Kconfig variable to configure arch specific percpu setup
Here is the first of two patches for x86_64 that move the pda into the per 
cpu area and then make the x86 percpu macros work for x86_64. This needs
to be generalized for other arches. The __per_cpu_start offsets can be
taken care of by the linker. We can also tell the linker to completely
relocate the percpu area to 0.



X86_64: Declare pda as per cpu data thereby moving it into the cpu area

Declare the pda as a per cpu variable. This will have the effect of moving
the pda data into the cpu area managed by cpu alloc.

The boot_pdas are only needed in head64.c so move the declaration
over there and make it static.

Remove the code that allocates special pda data structures.

The pda is moved to the beginning of the per cpu area. gs is pointing to the
pda. And therefore gs: is now pointing to the per cpu area of the current
processor. A per cpu variable can then be reached at

%gs:[&per_cpu_xxxx - __per_cpu_start]
