Subject[PATCH] [5/35] x86_64: always use physical delivery mode on > 8 CPUs
Date

From: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>

Remove clustered APIC mode. There's little point in the use of clustered APIC
mode, broadcasting is limited to within the cluster only, and chipsets have
bugs in this area as well. So default to physical APIC mode when the CPU
count is large, and default to logical APIC mode when the CPU count is 8 or
smaller.

(this patch only removes the use of genapic_cluster and cleans up the
resulting genapic.c file - removal of all remaining traces of clustered
mode will be done by another patch.)
