[PATCH] x86_64 early numa init fix

The tests Alok carried out on Petr's box confirmed that cpu_to_node[BP] is
not setup early enough by numa_init_array due to the x86_64 changes in
2.6.14-rc*, and unfortunately set wrongly by the work around code in
numa_init_array().  cpu_to_node[0] gets set with 1 early and later gets set
properly to 0 during identify_cpu() when all cpus are brought up, but
confusing the numa slab in the process.

Here is a quick fix for this.  The right fix obviously is to have
cpu_to_node[bsp] setup early for numa_init_array().  The following patch
will fix the problem now, and the code can stay on even when
cpu_to_node{BP] gets fixed early correctly.

Thanks to Petr for access to his box.
