Moving along the same direction.. Moving the vendor specific bits out of setup_64.c

in the diff below. So far I only looked at the AMD specific bits, and haven't done
a complete conversion to cpu_dev style initialisation as done on 32bit, but that
can easily be performed later after moving all the code out into its respective places.
(downside: a bunch of externs in the interim).

comments on this before I go any further?

Looks good to me at first glance, and would definitely be a good step on the way.
