Thanks for this Christoph!
These patches are great: the early experiments are obviously over, and so this
consolidation is overdue.
Have you considered moving x86-64's setup_per_cpu_areas into generic code?
It's a bit messier because some archs might not have set up NUMA stuff yet,
but it's logically generic...
