SubjectWrong IRQ distribution on Dual Xeon SMP system (2.4.17).
Date
Problem:  Wrong interrupts distribution between processors, as a result of
IO APIC configuration errors

Platform: SuperMicro P4DP6 motherboard (Intel E7500 chipset) with two Intel
Xeon Processors (512 Kb L2 cache @ 2.2 GHz), 1 Gb PC2100 RAM. Phoenix BIOS
1.1a (latest available for this board). Hyper threading enabled, ACPI
enabled.

Kernel: 2.4.17 Sherman-x330 (MontaVista) - SMP enabled.

Problem Description:

After booting the /proc/interrupts files reads as follows:

CPU0 CPU1 CPU2 CPU3
0: 23794 0 0 0 IO-APIC-edge timer
1: 1900 0 0 0 IO-APIC-edge keyboard
2: 0 0 0 0 XT-PIC cascade
4: 0 0 0 0 IO-APIC-edge KGDB-stub
9: 0 0 0 0 IO-APIC-edge acpi
17: 4718 0 0 0 IO-APIC-level eth0
NMI: 23672 23672 23672 23672
LOC: 23649 23648 23648 23646

**********************************************************************
Each logical processor has its own LAPIC.
This board has two Intel PCI/PCI-X Hubs (P64H2), each of them has two I/O
APICs (one for primary and one for secondary bus).
The following is delivered from Intel E7500 specification (paragraph 4.1.4 -
I/O APIC Memory Space):
Two I/O APICs a (I/OAPIC1 (HI_B)) are located in memory region 0xFEC80000 -
0xFEC80FFF, the next two (I/OAPIC2 (HI_C)) in memory region 0xFEC81000 -
0xFEC81FFF.
The fifth I/O APIC is coming from I/O Controller hub (ICH3) - I/O APIC #2 in
the above printout or I/O APIC0 (HI_A) according to the Intel E7500 chipset
Memory Range Address Map.
The addresses reported by Linux setup procedure are falling in the above
noted ranges. I tried to force kernel to use the ACPI tables instead of MP
table in order to see if the last one is correct. The addresses of I/O APICs
from the ACPI table were exactly the same as in MP table. For me this is
indication that there is no error in MP table (Am I wrong?).
As part of kernel initialization process, all the I/O APIC IDs were updated:

*************************************************************************
The problems starts to appear during the I/O APIC tests. The I/O Controller
Hub I/O APIC shows 0x020080000, which is wrong according to the I/O APIC
specification (should be 0x02000000 in my case), which cause kernel to print
a warning message.
Both I/O APICS of first P64H2 reported the same physical ID. The same
situation is for second P64H2:
