Okay... so what replace start_other_cores()?.. In CAR mode, do I make a call
to 'do_k8_init_and_stop_secondaries()'?
That code itself wont build due to the following in
  if (init_detected) {
                asm volatile ("jmp __cpu_reset");

because in CAR configs, arch/i386/lib/cpu_reset.inc is not included. On this
particular issue, I'm happy to wait for YH's fixes.

I just think if we're going to deprecate a core call like that, there should
be some documentation on *why* it was removed, as well as some indication as
to where the behavior got 'moved' to.

It just makes things a lot easier for thoes of us that are either ramping
up, or trying to maintain things..

Thanks Eric ;)
