[PATCH] enable X86_PC for HOTPLUG_CPU
CPU_HOTPLUG has race conditions when we use broadcast mode IPI. - First we introduced no_broadcast option (see include/asm-i386/mach-default/mach_ipi.h) - x86_64 solved it by using physical flat mode (same as bigsmp on i386) since this will not use broadcast shortcuts for IPI. - We switched to use bigsmp on i386 so that we can have same handling as x86_64, but apparently this caused an error message, if kernel was compiled without X86_GENERICARCH, X86_BIGSMP. The message "You have >8 CPUS..." which was bogus and misleading, and only indicated one of the above ARCH wasnt selected. So we do not switch to automatic bigsmp for HOTPLUG_CPU support in i386 until the other related config dependencies for SMP_SUSPEND etc can be done right.
