SubjectQuestion about prefill_possible_map
Date
Hi,

At the beginning of this function, there is:

/* No boot processor was found in mptable or ACPI MADT */
if (!num_processors) {
if (boot_cpu_has(X86_FEATURE_APIC)) {
int apicid = boot_cpu_physical_apicid;
int cpu = hard_smp_processor_id();

pr_warn("Boot CPU (id %d) not listed by BIOS\n", cpu);

/* Make sure boot cpu is enumerated */
if (apic->cpu_present_to_apicid(0) == BAD_APICID &&
apic->apic_id_valid(apicid))
generic_processor_info(apicid, boot_cpu_apic_version);
}

if (!num_processors)
num_processors = 1;
}

I see 3 cases will go through this code chunk,

1. UP, has no APCI MADT & MP table, but has APIC
2. 2a51fe083eba7f: kdump kernel running on the hot-plugged CPU
3. normal UP(No table, no APIC)

And "if (boot_cpu_has(X86_FEATURE_APIC))" covers case 1 & 2 to my
understanding.

But both cases 1 & 2 already have boot_cpu_physical_apicid initialized
from APIC ID register:
1. init_apic_mappings --> register_lapic_address
2. early_acpi_boot_init --> early_acpi_process_madt -->...-->
register_lapic_address

So my question is: is variable "cpu" redundant? Could it be:

diff --git a/arch/x86/kernel/smpboot.c b/arch/x86/kernel/smpboot.c
