    Subject[PATCH] Make Intel 8-way Xeons boot again
    On an 8-way system with Intel Xeon X7350 CPUs, booting 2.6.32 or newer
    kernels fails at:

    ...
    CPU0: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU X7350 @ 2.93GHz stepping 0b
    Booting Node 0, Processors #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 Ok.
    Brought up 8 CPUs
    Total of 8 processors activated (46906.05 BogoMIPS).

    Git bisect showed 2fbd07a5f as the offending commit.

    With the patch below, I am able to boot the latest Linus' git tree on
    the machine. If this patch is correct, it needs to get into the stable
    tree too.
