Subject[PATCH 1/6] x86: Limit the number of processor bootup messages
When there are a large number of processors in a system, there
is an excessive amount of messages sent to the system console.
It's estimated that with 4096 processors in a system, and the
console baudrate set to 56K, the startup messages will take
about 84 minutes to clear the serial port.

This set of patches limits the number of repetitious messages
which contain no additional information. Much of this information
is obtainable from the /proc and /sysfs. Some of the messages
are also sent to the kernel log buffer as KERN_DEBUG messages so
dmesg can be used to examine more closely any details specific to
a problem.

The list of message transformations....
For system_state == SYSTEM_BOOTING:

Booting Node 0, Processors #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 Ok.
Booting Node 1, Processors #8 #9 #10 #11 #12 #13 #14 #15 Ok.
..
Booting Node 3, Processors #56 #57 #58 #59 #60 #61 #62 #63 Ok.
Brought up 64 CPUs

The following lines have been removed:

CPU: Physical Processor ID:
CPU: Processor Core ID:
CPU %d/0x%x -> Node %d

The following lines will only be printed if unusual (state):

CPU %d is now offline (system_state == RUNNING)

The following lines will only be printed in debug mode:

Initializing CPU#%d

The following lines are only printed for the first (boot) cpu:

CPU0: Hyper-Threading is disabled
CPU0: Thermal monitoring enabled
