1. Tested as a fix to boot AP CPU on a hyper-threaded Intel
P4 models f29 and f49.

2. Tested to cause no regression to boot a non-hyper-threaded
Intel P4 CPU model f27 on the same platform as #1 testing.

3. Tested to cause no regression to boot AP CPUs on an Intel
P4 Xeon platform with dual socket604 and hyper-threaded model
f25 CPUs. The patch was not required for this platform to boot.

I have no possibility to test other platforms, so any feedback
with AMDs and VIAs is much appreciated.

For these tests, I considered it as a "fix" or "no regression"
if romstage executed with proper console output. Idwer Vollering
proceeded with the tests #1 and #2 for me on a platform with no
supported memory controller.

Test #3 is the A-Open board [1]. Gerrit version is outdated, I have
postponed updates for that until all the dependencies are merged.
