Are you saying that that replication of lvtthmr_init to the APs in
intel_init_thermal() is absolutely needed on those SMI machines running

That thing:

         * If BIOS takes over the thermal interrupt and sets its interrupt
         * delivery mode to SMI (not fixed), it restores the value that the
         * BIOS has programmed on AP based on BSP's info we saved since BIOS
         * is always setting the same value for all threads/cores.


Me moving that lvtthmr_init read later would replicate the wrong value
because we'd soft-disable the APIC and thus the core would lockup

The other interesting thing is that the core would always lockup when
trying to IPI another core to remote-flush the TLBs.
