  Move the PCPU_MD_FIELDS last in struct pcpu. While this header is
  private to the kernel, some ports define _KERNEL and include this
  header. While arguably this is wrong, it's also reality. By having
  the MD fields last, architectures that have CPU-specific variations
  of PCPU_MD_FIELDS will at least have the MI fields at a constant
  offset.  Of course, having all MI fields first helps kernel debugging
  as well, so this is not a change without some benefits to us.
  This change does not result in an ABI breakage, because this header
  is not part of the ABI. Recompilation of lsof is required though :-)
