Re: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2] MP initialization protocol differs between c

From: Peter Maydell
Subject: Re: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH v2] MP initialization protocol differs between cpu families, and for P6 and onward models it is up to CPU to decide if it will be BSP using this protocol, so try to model this. However there is no point in implementing MP init

This patch has a summary (subject) line that is way too long:
it should be short enough to fit reasonably on one line.

It's usual to put between-patchver changes below the '---' line.
