    x86: parsing for ACPI "SAPIC" table · ac049c1d

    Add kernel support for new ACPI "sapic" tables that contain 16-bit APICIDs.
    This patch simply adds parsing of an optional SAPIC table if present.
    Otherwise, the traditional local APIC table is used.
    
    Note: the SAPIC table is not a new ACPI table - it exists on other architectures
    but is not currently recognized by x86_64.
