Well, once secondary CPUs are fully up they are of course running their
respective idle VCPUs, so we can't call schedule_init() very late. The right
thing to do is dynamically allocate state as CPUs are brought online -- and
potentially free that state when CPUs are taken offline. Which is pretty
much the direction the code points in already.
