SubjectRE: APIC version
If you index it by 4-bit GET_APIC_ID() (not GET_APIC_LOGICAL_ID()), i.e.
hard_smp_processor_id(), you can get away with it.

Of course, it is possible that it can just be "don't care":

>I don't think the array apic_version[] is very helpful in the first place.
>I suspect it can be __init.


On the other hand, it might be needed if imagine hot plug CPU case.

No, the array is set up in mpparse.c before we know the real processor
