8-core SMP boot works fine for me on 'virt'...

Problems with do_transaction_failed mean the guest tried
to access some physical address where there is no device. This
is always a guest bug or misconfiguration. The commit you cite
there is the one that means we stop ignoring this and instead
generate guest bus errors, as real hardware usually does.

Not sure about the device_tree one, but again, 'virt' machine
works OK for me.

Thanks. Where they affect the 'virt' board, instructions to reproduce
there would be useful.
