Get rid of cpuinit?

We have gotten rid of devinit markup. A recent patch of Linus' makes me
wonder if we similarly should get rid of cpuinit markup?

Just as with devices, the CPU hotplug machinery has been leveraged to
support a number of pieces of functionality such as suspend, which means
that on anything but the most embedded systems this functionality is
likely needed anyway.

On x86-64, for an "allyesconfig" build, the total amount of space in all
the .cpu* sections combined is 100K.
