cpu_startup -- machine-dependent CPU startup
cpu_startup() is invoked early during system bootstrap, after the console
has been set up and immediately after uvm(9) has been initialized.
cpu_startup() performs the following tasks:
· prints the initial copyright message
· allocate memory and buffers for kernel tables
· initialize the CPU
