Yeah, it's config related as stated in the changelog. If you're referring
to 90ab9d551093 ("x86, hyperv: Correctly guard the local APIC calibration
code ")as "fixing" it, it does not. (I'm left to wonder what you mean by
it being fixed since you didn't elaborate.) You can trigger this build
breakage even with CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC=y.

Let me be explicit: this file includes desc.h, which includes linux/smp.h,
which includes asm/smp.h iff CONFIG_SMP is enabled. That's what you're
relying upon to get asm/apic.h when CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC is enabled. It
will break when CONFIG_SMP is disabled.

So you need to include asm/apic.h directly for such a configuration.
