Re: Enable SMP support

We have finished the first prototype of kern/cpu_number.h

http://dpaste.com/2QJB8VR

We have to improve many details, about initialization of structures and implementation of the function (may be better creates a cpu_number.c file, instead implement the function in the header), but now the compilation don't fails in this step.

The compilation continues failing, anymore

Finally, we got to write a test function to get the apic_id, and It feels to run correctly.
Now, we're trying to implement another function, to transform the apic_id in the kernel cpuid.

I attach the current test function to get apic_id with its test file

Yes, I saw this.

When I test It in Linux, I used a dual core computer. But the snippet returns "8" number.

Now I know the reason ;)

Also note here that you're confusing the APIC ID, a device identifier at
the hardware level, with the CPU ID, a processor identifier at the kernel
level. On some machines, the APIC ID may be higher than or equal to the
maximum number of processor installed.
