Use the IA-PC HPET (High Precision Event Timer) to manage
time in preference to the PIT and RTC, if a HPET is
present. The HPET provides a stable time base on SMP
systems, unlike the RTC, but it is more expensive to access,
as it is off-chip. You can find the HPET spec at
<http://www.intel.com/labs/platcomp/hpet/hpetspec.htm>.
If unsure, say Y.

config MICROCODE
tristate "/dev/cpu/microcode - Intel CPU microcode support"
---help---
If you say Y here the 'File systems' section, you will be
able to update the microcode on Intel processors. You will
obviously need the actual microcode binary data itself which is
not shipped with the Linux kernel.
For latest news and information on obtaining all the required
ingredients for this driver, check:
<http://www.urbanmyth.org/microcode/>.
To compile this driver as a module, choose M here: the
module will be called microcode.
If you use modprobe or kmod you may also want to add the line
'alias char-major-10-184 microcode' to your /etc/modules.conf file.
config X86_MSR
tristate "/dev/cpu/*/msr - Model-specific register support"
help
This device gives privileged processes access to the x86
Model-Specific Registers (MSRs). It is a character device with
major 202 and minors 0 to 31 for /dev/cpu/0/msr to /dev/cpu/31/msr.
MSR accesses are directed to a specific CPU on multi-processor
systems.
config X86_CPUID

/dev/cpu/31/cpuid.

config MTRR
bool "MTRR (Memory Type Range Register) support"
---help---
On Intel P6 family processors (Pentium Pro, Pentium II and later)
the Memory Type Range Registers (MTRRs) may be used to control
processor access to memory ranges. This is most useful if you have
a video (VGA) card on a PCI or AGP bus. Enabling write-combining
allows bus write transfers to be combined into a larger transfer
before bursting over the PCI/AGP bus. This can increase performance
of image write operations 2.5 times or more. Saying Y here creates a
/proc/mtrr file which may be used to manipulate your processor's
MTRRs. Typically the X server should use this.
This code has a reasonably generic interface so that similar
control registers on other processors can be easily supported
as well.
Saying Y here also fixes a problem with buggy SMP BIOSes which only
set the MTRRs for the boot CPU and not for the secondary CPUs. This
can lead to all sorts of problems, so it's good to say Y here.
Just say Y here, all x86-64 machines support MTRRs.
See <file:Documentation/mtrr.txt> for more information.
config SMP
bool "Symmetric multi-processing support"
---help---
This enables support for systems with more than one CPU. If you have
a system with only one CPU, like most personal computers, say N. If
you have a system with more than one CPU, say Y.
If you say N here, the kernel will run on single and multiprocessor
machines, but will use only one CPU of a multiprocessor machine. If
you say Y here, the kernel will run on many, but not all,
singleprocessor machines. On a singleprocessor machine, the kernel
will run faster if you say N here.
If you don't know what to do here, say N.
config PREEMPT
bool "Preemptible Kernel"
---help---
This option reduces the latency of the kernel when reacting to
real-time or interactive events by allowing a low priority process to
be preempted even if it is in kernel mode executing a system call.
This allows applications to run more reliably even when the system is
under load. On contrary it may also break your drivers and add
priority inheritance problems to your system. Don't select it if
you rely on a stable system or have slightly obscure hardware.
It's also not very well tested on x86-64 currently.
You have been warned.
Say Y here if you are feeling brave and building a kernel for a
desktop, embedded or real-time system. Say N if you are unsure.
config PREEMPT_BKL
bool "Preempt The Big Kernel Lock"
depends on PREEMPT
default y
help
This option reduces the latency of the kernel by making the
big kernel lock preemptible.
Say Y here if you are building a kernel for a desktop system.
Say N if you are unsure.
config SCHED_SMT
bool "SMT (Hyperthreading) scheduler support"
depends on SMP
default off
help
SMT scheduler support improves the CPU scheduler's decision making
when dealing with Intel Pentium 4 chips with HyperThreading at a
cost of slightly increased overhead in some places. If unsure say
N here.
config K8_NUMA
bool "K8 NUMA support"
select NUMA
depends on SMP
help
Enable NUMA (Non Unified Memory Architecture) support for
AMD Opteron Multiprocessor systems. The kernel will try to allocate
memory used by a CPU on the local memory controller of the CPU
and add some more NUMA awareness to the kernel.
This code is recommended on all multiprocessor Opteron systems
and normally doesn't hurt on others.
config NUMA_EMU
bool "NUMA emulation support"
select NUMA
depends on SMP
help
Enable NUMA emulation. A flat machine will be split
into virtual nodes when booted with "numa=fake=N", where N is the
number of nodes. This is only useful for debugging.

config NR_CPUS

depends on SMP
default "8"
help
This allows you to specify the maximum number of CPUs which this
kernel will support. Current maximum is 256 CPUs due to
APIC addressing limits. Less depending on the hardware.
This is purely to save memory - each supported CPU requires
memory in the static kernel configuration.
config GART_IOMMU
bool "IOMMU support"
depends on PCI
help
Support the K8 IOMMU. Needed to run systems with more than 4GB of memory
properly with 32-bit PCI devices that do not support DAC (Double Address
Cycle). The IOMMU can be turned off at runtime with the iommu=off parameter.
Normally the kernel will take the right choice by itself.
If unsure, say Y.

Don't use IOMMU code. This will cause problems when you have more than 4GB
of memory and any 32-bit devices. Don't turn on unless you know what you
are doing.
config X86_MCE

Use unordered stores to access IO memory mappings in device drivers.
Still very experimental. When a driver works on IA64/ppc64/pa-risc it should
work with this option, but it makes the drivers behave differently
from i386. Requires that the driver writer used memory barriers
properly.
