The easiest way would be just print this info on separate
lines like

IO-APIC (apicid-pin) 1-1 not connected

and just drop all this troubles :)

I'm not sure how much memory we need for every io-apic
pins - iirc there only 32 redirection entry so it could
be about 32 bytes from stack would be enough. Will take
a look. Thanks Maciej! Ingo?

Btw, i think the problem is rather with (as Ingo mentoined)
too nesting cycles - so maybe we could use an iterator
for this? Maybe rcu based? As I see these global variables
are not supposed to be changed during iterations and if that
happens in future we could achieve rcu complains about it
and this prevent us for possible bug. Opinions? (just
a thoughts)
