I'm trying to move my MP (Tyan Athlon) from 1.6L to current.  With options
MPACPI and _SCANPCI, it is panics when trying to attach the second cpu.

cpu0: idle pcb at 0xe4abc000, idle sp at 0xe4abff98
cpu1 at mainbus0: apid 0 (application processor)
cpu1: starting
cpu1: AMD Athlon (686-class), 1200.05 MHz, id 0x662

I don't know enough about how this is supposed to map the interrupts or
what the consquences of cpu2 being at apic 1 are.  If the APIC gods would
like me to try anything, it can be arranged.

Booting with a single cpu version of that kernel appears to muck-up the
interrupt routing, because the viaide on-board controller starts missing
interrupts and eventually hangs.  [ I have not collected the ACPIVERBOSE;
connected through a weasel, it is difficult to collect. ]

viaide0:0:1: lost interrupt
        type: ata tc_bcount: 512 tc_skip: 0
viaide0:0:1: lost interrupt
        type: ata tc_bcount: 512 tc_skip: 0

Using MPBIOS instead of MPACPI does work, at least as well as it did under
1.6L.  dmesg here:
