because current tree
in setup_per_cpu_areas will have
cpu_pda(i)->data_offset = ptr - __per_cpu_start;
but at that time all APs will use cpu_pda for boot cpu...,and APs will
get their pda in do_boot_cpu()
the result is all cpu will have same data_offset, there will share one
per_cpu_data..that is totally wrong!!
that could explain a lot of strange panic ....recently about NUMA...
