I tried to not do leaf 7.0 detect on AP booting code, but system behaves 
(not hang, but "su -" never returns, after just revert the change, it runs 

While at this point I want to focus on SMEP logic, we can make the improvements,
to move such initialization to BP code only, later.  Also it makes no much 
sense to only
move disable_smep that way, we should move all such variables.
