    Maciej, it *is* the right fix. These are UP systems not SMP systems, but
    if we boot an SMP kernel then we find a (largely bogus) mptable during the
    scan.

    Any BIOS of a real SMP box that is so blatantly broken to specify a NULL
    ioapic in the mptable deserves SMP mode being disabled altogether.

    lets not overcomplicate things.
