     Hi Thomas,

 Sorry if I wasn't clear. No, it doesn't work for us. The ff8560512b8d commit fixes the APIC poking on machines where there is no local APIC available (and thus fixes the committer's machine), but it doesn't work in our case, where there is a local APIC but no I/O APIC, no ACPI MADT, and no MP tables. 

 In other words, for us boot_cpu_has(X86_FEATURE_APIC) is true but the APIC has not been set up yet because init_apic_mappings() hasn't been run.

Linus tree has a fix for this:

ff8560512b8d x86/boot/smp: Don't try to poke disabled/non-existent APIC

It's on the way to stable as well. Can you try whether that works for you?
