That is fine for the current code base.  It will have to be revisited
when we get per cpu INIT stacks and the slave INIT handler actually
does something.

We are slowly but steadily moving to recovery from some MCA events.  If
one of the cpus is spinning disabled when an MCA occurs then the
disabled cpu will get a slave INIT event as part of the MCA rendezvous.
If the MCA is recoverable then the slave INIT event will also be
recoverable and will eventually return to user space.

That change is still some way off, but bear it in mind when changing
the existing code.
