I just checked that arch/x86/kernel/cpu/mcheck/mce.c's mcheck_init()
will not only run on BSP but also on APs. I put get_bsp_lvtthmr_init()
right behind init_apic_mappings() because init_apic_mappings() will
setup the fixmap for LAPIC so that I can call apic_read from inside
get_bsp_lvtthmr_init().

I can rename get_bsp_lvtthmr_init() to mcheck_intel_therm_init() to make
it more generic as we might add more stuff into it in the future.

Thanks for your comments.
