Say hello to LAPIC and IOAPIC, single processor


Sepherosa Ziehau’s made it possible for uniprocessor kernels to use the LAPIC and IOAPIC functions on x86_64, which means better timer support, less need to fiddle with configs, and more supported hardware.  A win all around!  Set hw.lapic_enable=”0″ if there’s trouble.  The same changes for i386 are on the way.
