Testing is the scary thing for me. I have no access to Summit or ES7000 boxes, and I don't know what external testing is being done on those systems and on what schedule. For all I know, bugs could be introduced and not fixed for an arbitrary time. If I know there is testing infrastructure I would like to move closer to x86/64's genapic code (which uses generic mechanisms to determine what APIC mode to use) and keep the minimal amount possible of default/bigsmp/summit/es7000 specific subarchitecture code. Still, some incremental progress on that path is definitely achievable.
