Re: [Xen-devel] Xen supported LAPIC features

There is the distinct possibility of that... but since this is WindRiver code, 
it would require a bit of investigation on my part.

The fact that you believe that the loapic timer should be able to run on a 
guest OS leads me to believe that I need to look into this further on the 
vxWorks side.

On Xen, as well as real hardware, you will read 0xffffffff from that attempted 
access.  Xen is merely also making a note that you have a buggy ioapic driver.  
My point was that, given you definitely have a buggy ioapic driver, are you 
certain you have no bugs in your lapic driver?
