Currently we get the APIC setup wrong when someone
uses an SMP kernel with the nosmp boot option - we
don't do set up when in fact it is necessary (for
linus tree).

We can't test on smp_num_cpus alone, as it is perfectly
valid to have an SMP h/w machine with only one CPU.

Not sure how to fix this ...

    Update to reflect reality. This isn't a problem in 2.4.10
    or ac tree, as the local APIC setup will still happen.

    Not worth fixing, documented.
