Subject[PATCH 10/15] x86 ioapic: In mpparse use mp_register_ioapic
From: Eric W. Biederman <>

Long ago MP_ioapic_info was the primary way of setting up our
ioapic data structures and mp_register_ioapic was a compatibility
shim for acpi code. Now the situation is reversed and
and mp_register_ioapic is the primary way of setting up our
ioapic data structures.

Keep the setting up of ioapic data structures uniform by
having mp_register_ioapic call mp_register_ioapic.

This changes a few fields:

- type: is now hardset to MP_IOAPIC but type had to
bey MP_IOAPIC or MP_ioapic_info would not have been called.

- flags: is now hard coded to MPC_APIC_USABLE.
We require flags to contain at least MPC_APIC_USEBLE in
MP_ioapic_info and we don't ever examine flags so dropping
a few flags that might possibly exist that we have never
used is harmless.

- apicaddr: Unchanged

- apicver: Read from the ioapic instead of using the cached
hardware value in the MP table. The real hardware value
will be more accurate.

- apicid: Now verified to be unique and changed if it is not.
If the BIOS got this right this is a noop. If the BIOS did
not fixing things appears to be the better solution.

This adds gsi_base and gsi_end values to our ioapics defined with
the mpatable, which will make our lives simpler later since
we can always assume gsi_base and gsi_end are valid.
