Some more pending items, including a large patch from Patrick
which splits the x86 CPU initialisation code up a lot, cleaning
up a lot of cruft in the process. Feedback on this welcomed from
users of as many weird and wonderful x86 variants as can be found.

As usual,..
Patch against 2.5.14 vanilla is available from:

Merged patch archive: http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/patches/merged/

Check http://www.codemonkey.org.uk/Linux-2.5.html before reporting
known bugs that are also in mainline.
