Here, the most confusing thing to me is the '!smp_found_config'. Why
does 'smp_found_config' has anything with APIC being separate or
integrated?

From code, 'smp_found_config = 1' when process ACPI MADT, or in
smp_scan_config(). Do you have any finding about the thing that if no
smp config apic must not exist?

Just for curiosity, I know this is copied from APIC_init_uniprocessor().
But I don't understand the logic clearly.
