Hi,

Sometime back I posted a patch for fixing x86 CPU topology (
http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/qemu-devel/2011-08/msg02022.html).
Here is the next version of the fix which addresses all but one
comment received during that post.

- Fixed code style issues
- Ensured that the fix doesn't break TCG mode
- I am not sure what is the problem with i486 as I haven't been able
to boot an i486 VM successfully, hence haven't attempted to fix this.

I have tested following scenarios and found the fix to be working fine.

KVM: (with --enable-kvm)
-smp sockets=1,cores=4,threads=2
-smp sockets=4,cores=4,threads=2
-cpu core2duo sockets=1,cores=4,threads=2
-cpu core2duo sockets=2,cores=4,threads=2

TCG: (without --enable-kvm)
-cpu core2duo sockets=1,cores=4,threads=2
-cpu core2duo sockets=2,cores=4,threads=2

Here is the updated patch which now applies against qemu.git.

********************
Fix apic id enumeration

apic id returned to guest kernel in ebx for cpuid(function=1) depends on
CPUX86State->cpuid_apic_id which gets populated after the cpuid information
is cached in the host kernel.

Fix this by setting cpuid_apic_id before cpuid information is passed to
the host kernel. This is done by moving the setting of cpuid_apic_id
to cpu_x86_init() where it will work for both KVM as well as TCG modes.

-smp 2 -cpu i486 boots fine here (granted, I don't have some i486 SMP
kernel at hand).

Should be obvious when looking at the hunk you took this from.

I am getting "Unable to find x86 CPU definition" error with -cpu i486.
Need to investigate more.

Yes, but I thought no harm in initializing it for uni processor case too, no ?

Err, sorry: -cpu 486

486 CPUs do not have the CPUID_APIC feature set as they do not include a
local APIC. But those SMP systems have external APICs.

Please post patches as top-level threads with [PATCH] in the subject. 
Please use git diff or better yet, git-send-email.

I posted a new thread and hence it has appeared as a top-level thread.

This was a fix and hence used [FIX], but if this mailing list expects
[PATCH], then will use it from next time.

This was a small patch and hence used quilt. If you insist, I can use
git for the next post :)

Regards,
Bharata.

It's not strictly required, but git includes extra information in the 
patch it generates (base revision) which git-am can use to merge the 
patch via a 3way merge instead of patch fuzz.  That makes life a bit 
easier when you're applying a lot of patches.
