Note: earlier this week i've rearchitectured the x86 subarchitecture and
APIC code - so there's a whole lot more to be done on the Voyager side
than just the cpumask conversion.

The x86/Voyager subarch is not fully ported yet (i cleaned up its Kconfig
impact already) and hence it is disabled for the time being. It ought to
be relatively straightforward to port it to the new code - if you are
interested in doing that.

You can find the latest code in tip/master at:

it's tentatively aimed for v2.6.30.

If you have any questions/suggestions about this code, feel free ...
