I'm running 4.9.1 on my laptop with no problems. You should open a new thread, and supply information about your hardware. It would also be useful to send the output of dmesg after booting for 4.8 and 4.9.1. Also post your kernel config.

x86/smpboot: Make logical package management more robust

commit 9d85eb9119f4eeeb48e87adfcd71f752655700e9 upstream.

The logical package management has several issues:

- The APIC ids provided by ACPI are not required to be the same as the
initial APIC id which can be retrieved by CPUID. The APIC ids provided
by ACPI are those which are written by the BIOS into the APIC. The
initial id is set by hardware and can not be changed. The hardware
provided ids contain the real hardware package information.

Especially AMD sets the effective APIC id different from the hardware id
as they need to reserve space for the IOAPIC ids starting at id 0.

As a consequence those machines trigger the currently active firmware
bug printouts in dmesg, These are obviously wrong.

- Virtual machines have their own interesting of enumerating APICs and
packages which are not reliably covered by the current implementation.

The sizing of the mapping array has been tweaked to be generously large to
handle systems which provide a wrong core count when HT is disabled so the
whole magic which checks for space in the physical hotplug case is not
needed anymore.

Simplify the whole machinery and do the mapping when the CPU starts and the
CPUID derived physical package information is available. This solves the
observed problems on AMD machines and works for the virtualization issues
as well.

Remove the extra call from XEN cpu bringup code as it is not longer
required.

4.4.41 seems to compile fine under -current64.

Just a thought... as it is unlikely that every kernel release makes its way in -current, let alone every release candidate, maybe a dedicated thread for kernel releases testing would be relevant?

I would like to also see llvm 3.9.1 for the next mesa update, but it maybe makes more sense to wait for 4.0 February 21.

I've successfully built mesa 13.0.3 using LLVM 3.9.1 so I see no reason to wait for LLVM 4.0.

Lines 49 and 50 of the pre-packaged /etc/inetd.conf contain references to ktalkd and kotalkd.

Whereas these daemons were removed from KDE by the version 2.0.

I am reporting it here, because apparently, the version 1.79s of inetd is written by Patrick Volkerding.

Huge batch in -current

See under Thu Jan 12 01:15:52 UTC 2017 in the ChangeLog (x86_64) for instance.

Thanks Patrick!

Incidentally there's also a fix for Python 2.7.13
