[Xen-devel] [PATCH] get_current() called before set_current()

The recent change that added debugging to spinlocks (cset 1.1278.1.1)
caused get_current() to be called earlier in the boot process.  In fact,
it is now called before set_current().

If assertions are compiled in, this ultimately causes a triple fault
when Xen tries to print the banner.  If assertions aren't compiled in,
memory corruption results (although currently this corruption appears to
be benign.)

The attached patch moves the first set_current() call a bit earlier in
the boot process.
