	The system reboots when the 2nd cpu is being probed.
	Boot a MP kernel on a Gigabyte GA-K8NSC-939 board and notice that
	something cause an reboot while the 2nd cpu is in the procces to

	The patch attatched to port-i386/35618 was applied to get a working

	This is the kernel output when this happens. Please note that the
	'cpu?: delay' are some debug aprint_normal followed by an DELAY(3000000)
	to find the place where it crashes.

	mp_cpu_start (i386/i386/cpu.c) calls x86_ipi (x86/x86/lapic.c):
	And the function in x86_ipi which cause the reboot is:
i82489_writereg(LAPIC_ICRLO, (target & LAPIC_DEST_MASK) | vec | dl | LAPIC_LVL_ASSERT)

	'x86_ipi 1' is a aprint_normal before the i82489_writereg.
	The 'c' in the next line is propably from the next aprint_normal after

	A full dmesg output without 'options MULTIPROCESSOR' can be found
