Subject[PATCH 2/2 v2] x86: remove unused function, register the cpu vendor in nexgen.c
Nobody calls the function nexgen_init_cpu(), which is defined
in arch/x86/kernel/cpu/nexgen.c. Therefore this routine can
be removed, and this patch does so.

Additionally, this patch adds the missing registration of the
NexGen CPUs by the cpu_vendor_dev_register() macro.

This patch was build-tested using the defconfig for i386. It
also survived a few randconfig instances. Runtime tests were
performed by booting an i386 box up to the shell prompt.

Thanks for your review. Hopefully this version is OK.
