[x86-tip] RSDP changes converted i4790 box SMP -> UP




Hi Juergen,

Yesterday I wanted to test the RETPOLINE stuff in tip and tip-rt, but
discovered instead that my box had turned into a complete slug, not due
to incredible RETPOLINE overhead, rather because box had forgotten that
it had more than one CPU.  I was going to leave it for the weekend, but
firing up gitk over morning java, I noticed the commits below, and sure
enough, that's what broke my box.  Given other people's boxen work,
seems likely that the authors of the AMI BIOS in this box were a bit
more creative than usual.
