Revert "x86/apic: Include the LDR when clearing out APIC registers"
[ Upstream commit 950b07c1 ] This reverts commit 558682b5. Chris Wilson reports that it breaks his CPU hotplug test scripts. In particular, it breaks offlining and then re-onlining the boot CPU, which we treat specially (and the BIOS does too). The symptoms are that we can offline the CPU, but it then does not come back online again: smpboot: CPU 0 is now offline smpboot: Booting Node 0 Processor 0 APIC 0x0 smpboot: do_boot_cpu failed(-1) to wakeup CPU#0 Thomas says he knows why it's broken (my personal suspicion: our magic handling of the "cpu0_logical_apicid" thing), but for 5.3 the right fix is to just revert it, since we've never touched the LDR bits before, and it's not worth the risk to do anything else at this stage. [ Hotpluging of the boot CPU is special anyway, and should be off by default. See the "BOOTPARAM_HOTPLUG_CPU0" config option and the cpu0_hotplug kernel parameter. In general you should not do it, and it has various known limitations (hibernate and suspend require the boot CPU, for example). But it should work, even if the boot CPU is special and needs careful treatment - Linus ] Link: https://lore.kernel.org/lkml/156785100521.13300.14461504732265570003@skylake-alporthouse-com/Reported-by: Chris Wilson <email@example.com> Acked-by: Thomas Gleixner <firstname.lastname@example.org> Cc: Bandan Das <email@example.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <firstname.lastname@example.org> Signed-off-by: Sasha Levin <email@example.com>
