8.4 Declaring Processors


When the platform uses the APIC interrupt model, OSPM associates processors 
declared in the namespace
with entries in the MADT. Prior to ACPI 3.0, this was accomplished using the 
processor object's
ProcessorID and the ACPI Processor ID fields in MADT entries. UID fields were 
added to MADT entries
in ACPI 3.0. By expanding processor declaration using Device definitions, UID 
object values under a
processor device are used to associate processor devices with entries in the 
MADT. This removes the
previous 256 processor declaration limit.
