I did a quick grep through other archs. Mostly, init_cpu_present is 
preferred when you update a entire cpumask or cpu 0.
We can just use cpu_possible_mask and init_cpu_present together to avoid 
the loop. It will just set the current boot cpu bit once more.

But looking at ARM64 code, we may have to bring back the loop when we 
have some implementation similar cpu_ops.
