Hi Baoquan,

Thanks for your reply!

My answer is in below.

Change the comment to:

On 32-bit, the APIC may be a separated chip(82489DX) or integrated chip.
if BSP doesn't has APIC feature, we can sure there is no integrated
chip, but can not be sure there is no independent chip. So check two
situation when BSP doesn't has APIC feature.

If there is also no SMP configuration, we can be sure there is no
separated chip. Switch the interrupt delivery node to APIC_PIC directly.

Yes.

I am sorry my comment may confuse you. our target is checking if BIOS
supports APIC, no matter what type(separated/integrated) it is.

The new logic 1) as you said may like :

if (!boot_cpu_has(X86_FEATURE_APIC))
return ...
if (lapic_is_integrated())
return ...
here we miss (!boot_cpu_has(X86_FEATURE_APIC) && smp_found_config) for
a separated chip.

Yes, 82489DX – it was a discrete chip that functioned both as local and
I/O APIC

Indeed, I will. Please see the modification of comments

Sanity check if the BIOS pretends there is one local APIC.


Thanks,
