Architecture Specific Code For the Intel MP Port

The architecture specific code for the intel port splits fairly cleanly into four sections. Firstly the initialisation code used to boot the system, secondly the message handling and support code, thirdly the interrupt and kernel syscall entry function handling and finally the extensions to standard kernel facilities to cope with multiple processors.
