actually x86_pc is one mode of genericarch..., genericarch already
could detect pc, bigsmp, and numaq, es7000, bigsmp, visew..

hope later we can change mach_default to default. but embed guys may
want to keep it as seperated one.

in the dmesg when booting x86_pc only, we already have warning to let
you set bigsmp if you have 8 more cpus.
