When my kernel is build for one CPU, no SMP and APIC in my GENERIC file,
the kernel compiles and boots. But when I compile with "options SMP" and
"device apic" the kernel compiles but does not boot. It crashes after
the 15sec SCSI settle. When I look at the dump from the SMP kernel, it
looks like an error from irr.
If you set 'kern.smp.disabled=1' from the loader, does the SMP kernel boot ok
(but only with one CPU in use)?
As I understand correct, the "device iir" in the GENERIC file means that
it is compiled in the kernel. Is it possible to load it as a module?
It can be loaded as a module so long as you don't boot from it.
