OK, there's one problem with this commit: mem_range_AP_init() is
defined in mem.c, but referenced in mp_machdep.c (and nowhere else).
Therefore, you can't build an i386 or amd64 SMP kernel without 'device
mem'.  I believe that simply moving mem_range_AP_init() to a different
file (perhaps machdep.c?) should fix this.
