You need to enable smp in the kernel to get apic enabled. And use
maxcpus=1 if you only need one cpu running.

Yes I did.  I wasn't sure if I added them correctly, though.  I just

It works for a different kernel through the filo etherboot pathway, so
wondering if I've misconfigured the kernel.  Do I need to explicitly
