Greg, Konrad is referring to:

commit 73d63d038ee9f769f5e5b46792d227fe20e442c5
Author: Suresh Siddha <suresh.b.siddha@intel.com>

x86/ioapic: Add register level checks to detect bogus io-apic entries

With out this commit, if the bios lists bogus io-apic's, then we will
see some error messages ("Unable to reset IRR for apic")during linux
boot which are benign. But as this patch breaks Xen, I am ok if these
don't get applied to 'stable'. Also I think it is Ingo who added the
'stable' tag. Ingo, are you ok with this?

For the mainline, we have queued more patches to fix the Xen breakage.

thanks,
suresh
