Hi Guenter,
Could you please help to provide the config file and
error messages?

Config file:
Hi Guenter,
Thanks for help. According to the above configuration file:
CONFIG_PCI_MSI is enabled, but CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC and
CONFIG_X86_IO_APIC are both disabled. But the Kconfig for X86_LOCAL_APIC
is defined as:
config X86_LOCAL_APIC
def_bool y
depends on X86_64 || SMP || X86_32_NON_STANDARD || X86_UP_APIC

That means CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC should be enabled if CONFIG_PCI_MSI is
enabled. So how did you generate the qemu_x86_pc_nosmp_defconfig? Are
you using an old configuration file?

I took the configuration file I had for the SMP case (located in the same
directory in the git repository), disabled SMP, and ran "make savedefconfig".
"old" is relative in this context; I don't usually create new configuration
files for each new kernel release, so, yes, you could say that the file
I used is "old".

CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC is enabled. Keep in mind this is a configuration file
created with "make savedefconfig", so default settings are not included.
Correct, CONFIG_X86_IO_APIC is not enabled, but that is not really surprising
since its dependencies are not met as far as I can see.

Overall, I am not sure I understand what you are trying to say. X86_IO_APIC
depends on X86_64 (not set) or SMP (not set) or X86_32_NON_STANDARD (not set)
or X86_UP_IOAPIC (not set because it depends on X86_UP_APIC which depends on

Does that mean that I'll have to disable PCI_MSI to get x86 uniprocessor
support to work after your patch ?
