Sorry, I should have noted this.  The primary reason I put this in, is
that if the HAVE_SETUP_PER_CPU_AREA is not set when it should be, then
the incorrect (generic) setup_per_cpu_areas() is used and weird things
happen later on.  The above line documents that PERCPU has been allocated
by init/main.c version of this function in the startup messages.
(Since it's a static function, there is no "duplicate label" error in
the linker.)

Thanks,
Mike
