Subject[PATCH] x86/apic: reset LDR in clear_local_APIC
Date

On a 32 bit RHEL6 guest with greater than 8 cpus, the
kdump kernel hangs when calibrating apic. This happens
because when apic initializes bigsmp, it also initializes LDR
even though it probably wouldn't be used.

When booting into kdump, KVM apic incorrectly reads the stale LDR
values from the guest while building the logical destination map
even for inactive vcpus. While KVM apic can be fixed to ignore apics
that haven't been enabled, a simple guest only change can be to
just clear out the LDR.
