Well, I've got some data from earlyprintk (forgot I needed to boot with
vga=normal).

Unfortunately, I had to rewrite the trace manually:

clear_IO_APIC_pin+0x15/0x6a
try_apic_pin+0x7a/0x98
setup_IO_APIC+0x600/0xb7a
smp_prepare_cpus+0x33a/0x371
init+0x60/0x32d
child_rip+0xa/0x12

[And then the unwinder said it got stuck.]

RIP is reported to be at ioapic_read_entry+0x33/0x61, which according to gdb
is:

0xffffffff80271418 is in ioapic_read_entry (include/asm/io.h:204).
199
200 #define mmiowb()

202 static inline void __writel(__u32 b, volatile void __iomem *addr)
203 {
204 *(__force volatile __u32 *)addr = b;
205 }
206 static inline void __writeq(__u64 b, volatile void __iomem *addr)
207 {
208 *(__force volatile __u64 *)addr = b;

Well, it's booted with 'noapic', so no wonder ...

Tomorrow I'll try a serial one, but now I must get some sleep (I can hardly
see anything).
