  Do not call hw_mds_recalculate() from initializecpu().

  If MDS mitigation is enabled by the tunable but MDS microcode is not
  early-loaded, software mitigation is selected.  This causes
  initializecpu() to try to allocate memory which makes boot process
  very unhappy.

  Create SYSINIT that runs sufficiently late to succeed.
