Subject[PATCH 32/70] x86/head/64: Switch to initial stack earlier
Date
From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@suse.de>

Make sure there is a stack once the kernel runs from virual addresses.
At this stage any secondary CPU which boots will have lost its stack
because the kernel switched to a new page-table which does not map the
real-mode stack anymore.

This is also needed for handling early #VC exceptions caused by
instructions like CPUID.
