I've picked up the patches which make sense independent of the TLB
optimization. So they are out of your way :)

Vs. x2apic shorthands. It's not only x2apic. We generally do not make use
of shorthands when CPU hotplug is enabled as that needs some deep care
vs. the state whether a present CPU had been brought up at least once,
similar to the MCE issue which causes us to do the online/offlie dance for
SMT control at boot. There are a few other nasty details like the APIC
state on CPU hot unplug and NMI shorthands.

I have a WIP series in the pipeline which I'm going to post soon. I'll put
you on CC.

For the TLB related parts, I delegate the review happily to our x86 mm/tlb
wizards. Hint, hint ...
