[Xen-devel] [PATCH v6 11/12] x86/time: Initialize interrupt mode behind timer init

In start_kernel(), firstly, it works on the default interrupy mode, then
switch to the final mode. Normally, Booting with BIOS reset is OK.

But, At dump-capture kernel, it boot up without BIOS reset, default mode
may not be compatible with the actual registers, that causes the delivery
interrupt to fail.

Try to set up the final mode as soon as possible. according to the parts
which split from that initialization:

1) Set up the APIC/IOAPIC (including testing whether the timer
   interrupt works)

2) Calibrate TSC

3) Set up the local APIC timer

-- From Thomas Gleixner

Initializing the mode should be earlier than calibrating TSC as soon as
possible and needs testing whether the timer interrupt works at the same

call it behind timers init, which meets the above conditions.
