Wait - do you mean that everything works now?  Or that everything still runs
on CPU0?

The very first thing that idle_loop() does on amd64/i386 is set up the frame
pointer - ebp/rbp.

0000000000000000 <idle_loop>:
   0:   55                      push   %rbp
   1:   48 89 e5                mov    %rsp,%rbp
   4:   41 56                   push   %r14
   6:   41 55                   push   %r13
