Ok. I'll take notes about this idea.

Currently, I have an implementation to find lapic and ioapic from ACPI tables, from the kernel.
In the test model runs correctly, now I'm porting this to gnumach.

This is a preliminary implementation:

Currently we have problems with memory: in the original implementation we use physical address, and now we have to use logical address.
We've used phystokv(address) call to get logical address from physical address, but It continues crashing.


May I forgot any required step?

That's the idea.
