Hi list,
just a quick question, for the sake of knowledge:

> dmesg | grep "^ cpu"
 cpu0 (BSP): APIC ID:  0
 cpu1 (AP): APIC ID:  1

Does anyone know what BSP and AP mean? I search google and wikipedia
but I can't find anything useful, let alone "The Bulk Synchronous
Parallel computer is a model for designing parallel algorithms." this
one, which I don't think is related.
