Subject: [SMP BUG]  [clockevents: i386 drivers patch]  introduces 
 irqbalance-does-not-work-properly problem

Hi,


[clockevents: i386 drivers patch] introduces
  irqbalance-does-not-work-properly problem.

 
(The irq is not distributed to two Core
  ,most of the irq is distributed to CPU1)
 

 Mr. Thomas Gleixner,
 any idea to fix this problem?

>    Add clockevent drivers for i386: lapic (local) and PIT/HPET (global).  Update
