SubjectRe: Strange lockup of the timer with 2.4.0-test10 SMP (and older)
Hi,
I just patched my kernel and here are my results:

> systems. Please apply and give me the "IRQ to pin mappings:" part of the
> bootstrap log. I'm pretty confident we get everything fine there, but

0 0 00
IRQ to pin mappings:
IRQ0 -> 0:2
IRQ1 -> 0:1
IRQ3 -> 0:3
IRQ4 -> 0:4
IRQ6 -> 0:6
IRQ7 -> 0:7
IRQ8 -> 0:8
IRQ9 -> 0:9
IRQ12 -> 0:12
IRQ16 -> 1:0
IRQ17 -> 1:1
IRQ20 -> 1:4
IRQ24 -> 1:8
IRQ25 -> 1:9
Just curious : what do these numbers on the right refer to ? Are they
real physical pins of the processor ?

Here are both outputs:

Now this looks really cryptic to me.

Both outputs are different.

- They are in displayed in a different order :
APIC 3 then 0 before lock and APIC 0 then 3 after the lock.

- Last line of the APIC 0 differ on one bit :
Before lock 00000000000000010000000000000000
After lock 00000000000000000000000000000000
- Line 15 of APIC 3 differ :
Before lock 00000000000000000100000000000000
After lock 00000000000000000000000000000000

The only informations that I can read in the manual are :

ServerWorks LE 3.0 Chipset: features the ServerWorks LE 3.0 North
Bridge and RCC Open South Bridge.
Integrated IOAPIC: Supports full 32-APIC entries and removes the need
for a separate IOAPIC chip. <<<< the source of the original problem ?

I will try to find some technical specification on the web.

Thank you.
