Subject[PATCH 1/4] x86 smpboot: remove udelay(100) when polling cpu_initialized_map
Date
From: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>

After the BSP sends the APIC INIT/SIPI/SIPI to the AP,
it waits for the AP to come up and indicate that it is alive
by setting its own bit in the cpu_initialized_mask.

Linux polls for up to 10 seconds for this to happen.
Each polling loop has a udelay(100) and a call to schedule().

The udelay(100) adds no value.

For example, on my desktop, the BSP waits for the
other 3 CPUs to come on line at boot for 305, 404, 405 usec.
For resume from S3, it waits 317, 404, 405 usec.

But when the udelay(100) is removed, the BSP waits
305, 310, 306 for boot, and 305, 307, 306 for resume.

So for both boot and resume, removing the udelay(100)
speeds online by about 100us in 2 of 3 cases.
