No joy on my machine. Still not seeing the local apic on bootup. It
panics just after loading the kernel and even before the initial credits
are shown (The Dragonfly Project blabla).
I'll try to enable both the APIC and the ICU, and fallback to the
latter if it fails, like CURRENT does.
Incidently, if I am able to pull this off, it will be my first public kernel
contibution to any OS (well, not counting kld-work).
Wish me luck! :)
