smp_store_cpu_info(0) will do that.

Question: why do we need the memory barrier there? We're running on the
BSP and long before smp_init() to be all careful about the callin_mask.
It could be there as a left over from the 32 and 64-bit merge, AFAICT
from git history...

Thanks.

x86: Don't copy per_cpu cpuinfo for BSP two times

smp_store_cpu_info(0) will do that.
