Re: [Xen-devel] Xen supported LAPIC features

In this case, they were looking for the number of "Local interrupts" and if it 
was zero, they were skipping the rest of the initialization.   They also will 
skip the remainder of the initialization if the IO interrupts is zero but I 
didn't trip over that case.

Thats good news that you have managed to make it work.

Which information is vxWorks expecting from the MP tables which is not present? 
 If it is useful information then we might as well be presenting it.
