I looked and restore_processor_state is referenced in several places,
so changing
wakeup_64.S is not enough. Is moving the beginning of restore_processor_state
to an .S file ok? I see restore_processor_state initializes CR registers first,
do you know if there is a reason to do so (can I init segment
registers before CR ones)?

Regards,
Roman.
