There may be a possible problem or change in the timer code. For the most
part the "kvm64" cpu works for me, but I saw this once:

smpboot: Max logical packages: 1
..TIMER: vector=0x30 apic1=0 pin1=2 apic2=-1 pin2=-1
..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC
...trying to set up timer (IRQ0) through the 8259A ...
..... (found apic 0 pin 2) ...
....... failed.
...trying to set up timer as Virtual Wire IRQ...
..... failed.
...trying to set up timer as ExtINT IRQ...
..... failed :(.
Kernel panic - not syncing: IO-APIC + timer doesn't work!  Boot with apic=debug and send a report.  Then try booting with the 'noapic' option.

The "normal" log with -next looks as follows:

smpboot: Max logical packages: 4
..TIMER: vector=0x30 apic1=0 pin1=2 apic2=-1 pin2=-1
..MP-BIOS bug: 8254 timer not connected to IO-APIC
...trying to set up timer (IRQ0) through the 8259A ...
..... (found apic 0 pin 2) ...
....... failed.
...trying to set up timer as Virtual Wire IRQ...
..... failed.
...trying to set up timer as ExtINT IRQ...
..... works.

Upstream (v4.10-rc6-193-ga572a1b99948), the same command yields no error at all:

..TIMER: vector=0x30 apic1=0 pin1=2 apic2=-1 pin2=-1
smpboot: CPU0: Intel Common KVM processor (family: 0xf, model: 0x6, stepping: 0x1)

The "new" error message is also seen with other CPUs, not just with "kvm64".

I am using qemu 2.8.

Maybe we should try to figure out where the new error messages come from ?

Thanks,
Guenter
