FYI: I am rewriting cpu initialization....

Since the freebios2 tree was started we have not revisited
the cpu initialization code.  And now that it seems there
are little tweaks needed for every cpu rev, I am starting
that process.

So far I have just barely made a dent but I do have 
code that will accurately identify the cpu, and look
up it's initialization routine.  A goal is to allow
building firmware that can support multiple vendors cpu in the same
sockets, as is common in the socket 7 category.

I'm not quite certain where I am going to wind up but I don't
expect I will have anything in the public tree before next

If anyone has some thoughts they want to share while I am reworking
cpu initialization feel free to speak up.
