ALR rackmount machine, can support up to 6 Pentium Pros on two cpu card
inserts, currently has two.  Long ago, I was able to boot this machine
(or maybe it was the identical machine next to it) using a kernel with
a slightly-hacked-to-apply-cleanly version of the original XXMP patches,
and cpu1 did spin up properly, but I no longer have a copy of that kernel
or dmesg.  I'm thinking it was sometime during the 1.3K age or so...

Now, I get a uvm fault, similar to what matt debergalis is getting.
Note that, similar to his machine, this bootprocessor is not at apid 0.

A little tracing around shows that:
mpbios_int+0x55: 0xfffffef0(%ebp) is 0, thus jumping to mpbios_int+0x6c
mpbios_int+0x6c: does some stuff with mp_busses and sets %edi from it, the
  last place where %edi is set before
mpbios_int+0xe3: %eax is set from 0xc(%edi), which contains 0, followed by
mpbios_int+0xe6: call *%eax

thus resulting in a uvm fault when an attempt is made to execute at memory
location 0.

Some traceback below (ten-finger copy, but should be accurate):
