Intel Multiprocessor Spec

As of this writing, the spec is presently at version 1.4. It is a standard that defines how SMP motherboard vendors must build systems using a combination of local APICs, I/O APICs and special BIOS APIs. It also defines the ways in which interrupt signals may be interconnected and how to transition a system from PIC mode to Symmetric I/O mode.
