    Subject[PATCH 09/14] x86 ioapic: In mpparse use mp_register_ioapic
    From: Eric W. Biederman <>

    Long ago MP_ioapic_info was the primary way of setting up our
    ioapic data structures and mp_register_ioapic was a compatibility
    shim for acpi code. Now the situation is reversed and
    and mp_register_ioapic is the primary way of setting up our
    ioapic data structures.

    Keep the setting up of ioapic data structures uniform by
    having mp_register_ioapic call mp_register_ioapic.

    This changes a few fields:

    - type: is now hardset to MP_IOAPIC but type had to
    bey MP_IOAPIC or MP_ioapic_info would not have been called.

    - flags: is now hard coded to MPC_APIC_USABLE.
    We require flags to contain at least MPC_APIC_USEBLE in
    MP_ioapic_info and we don't ever examine flags so dropping
    a few flags that might possibly exist that we have never
    used is harmless.

    - apicaddr: Unchanged

    - apicver: Read from the ioapic instead of using the cached
    hardware value in the MP table. The real hardware value
    will be more accurate.

    - apicid: Now verified to be unique and changed if it is not.
    If the BIOS got this right this is a noop. If the BIOS did
    not fixing things appears to be the better solution.

    This adds gsi_base and gsi_end values to our ioapics defined with
    the mpatable, which will make our lives simpler later since
    we can always assume gsi_base and gsi_end are valid.
