more test results: i just booted an allyesconfig 64-bit (MAXSMP, etc.)
kernel on x86 native hardware successfully - that has Alexander's patch
included but not your boot tweak. (has all your other patches included)

would you expect a real 4K CPUs system to boot any differently? So early
during bootup all x86 hardware is just a uniprocessor, so i'd be
surprised if there was any difference.

[ in any case, if the tweak still makes a real difference for you we can
still apply it because it does not hurt anyone - but lets try to avoid
black voodoo tweaks as much as possible :) ]

btw,. booting up MAXSMP is pretty impressive:

CONFIG_NR_CPUS=4096

shows how far Linux scalability has come :)

i've got a bugreport for you though: MAXSMP does not suspend+resume
correctly ;-) It gets this far:

[ 146.348790] PM: Syncing filesystems ... done.
[ 146.353488] PM: Preparing system for mem sleep
[ 146.360204] Freezing user space processes ... (elapsed 0.00 seconds) done.
[ 146.367172] Freezing remaining freezable tasks ... (elapsed 0.93 seconds) done.
[ 147.309618] PM: Entering mem sleep
[ 147.313032] Suspending console(s)

then reboots spontaneously instead of resuming. (I use the
suspend+resume self-test feature below to conduct automated
suspend/resume tests.)

Subject: suspend: sleepy linux self-test
From: David Brownell <david-b@pacbell.net>
See the appended; it includes more of Ingo's suggestions.

Since this is increasingly unrelated to the "sleepy linux" concept
(a version of what systems like OLPC, N700, and N800 are doing), I
got rid of the "sleepy.c" file.

- Dave

============ CUT HERE
Boot-time test for system suspend states (STR or standby). The generic
RTC framework triggers wakeup alarms, used to exit those states.
- Measures some aspects of suspend time; uses "jiffies". This
should probably use a clocksource instead, since those often
work properly even while IRQs are disabled.

- Includes a command line parameter, which needs work yet ... it
currently turns this test off, but it should also let the target
state be specified (and maybe even default to "no test").

Lightly tested on an ARM system, which reported that suspending devices
took 7 msec and resuming them took 132 msec:

* The PCMCIA stack misbehaved a bit. It didn't finish enumerating
the card before it suspended, so the wakeup event came from the
CF card IRQ not from the RTC!

* The MMC stack misbehaved more seriously. It wants to remove devices
during the suspend sequence (quite needlessly, on this hardware),
which now makes Linux unhappy.

Workaround in both cases was to take the memory card out before booting.

Also includes some Kconfig tweaks to help reduce configuration bugs on
x86, by avoiding the legacy RTC driver when the generic RTC framework
is enabled ... those should become a separate patch.
