      x86, mrst: Don't blindly access extended config space · e9b1d5d0
      H. Peter Anvin authored
      Do not blindly access extended configuration space unless we actively
      know we're on a Moorestown platform.  The fixed-size BAR capability
      lives in the extended configuration space, and thus is not applicable
      if the configuration space isn't appropriately sized.
      This fixes booting certain VMware configurations with CONFIG_MRST=y.
      Moorestown will add a fake PCI-X 266 capability to advertise the
      presence of extended configuration space.

      The L3 cache index disable feature of AMD CPUs has to be disabled if the
      kernel is running as guest on top of a hypervisor because northbridge
      devices are not available to the guest. Currently, this fixes a boot
      crash on top of Xen. In the future this will become an issue on KVM as
      Check if northbridge devices are present and do not enable the feature
      if there are none.

      x86, k8: Fix build error when K8_NB is disabled · ade029e2
      Borislav Petkov authored
      K8_NB depends on PCI and when the last is disabled (allnoconfig) we fail
      at the final linking stage due to missing exported num_k8_northbridges.
      Add a header stub for that.

      x86: Fix fake apicid to node mapping for numa emulation · b0c4d952
      David Rientjes authored
      With NUMA emulation, it's possible for a single cpu to be bound
      to multiple nodes since more than one may have affinity if
      allocated on a physical node that is local to the cpu.
      APIC ids must therefore be mapped to the lowest node ids to
      maintain generic kernel use of functions such as cpu_to_node()
      that determine device affinity.  For example, if a device has
      proximity to physical node 1, for instance, and a cpu happens to
      be mapped to a higher emulated node id 8, the proximity may not
      be correctly determined by comparison in generic code even
      though the cpu may be truly local and allocated on physical node 1.
      When this happens, the true topology of the machine isn't
      accurately represented in the emulated environment; although
      this isn't critical to the system's uptime, any generic code
      that is NUMA aware benefits from the physical topology being
      accurately represented.
      This can affect any system that maps multiple APIC ids to a
      single node and is booted with numa=fake=N where N is greater
      than the number of physical nodes.
