Subject[16/19] x86, UV: Remove UV delay in starting slave cpus
2.6.32-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Jack Steiner <steiner@sgi.com>

commit 05e33fc20ea5e493a2a1e7f1d04f43cdf89f83ed upstream.

Delete the 10 msec delay between the INIT and SIPI when starting
slave cpus. I can find no requirement for this delay. BIOS also
has similar code sequences without the delay.

Removing the delay reduces boot time by 40 sec. Every bit helps.
