Description of problem:
When using "menuconfig" to configure the kernel, and I enable "APIC support on 
uniprocessors", without having SMP enabled, when I go to compile (make 
bzImage), the make errors out with:
arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o(.text.init+0x472f): undefined reference to
arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o(.text.init+0x4761): undefined reference to
arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o: In function `get_smp_config':
arch/i386/kernel/kernel.o(.text.init+0x498e): undefined reference to
make[1]: *** [kallsyms] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.9-31'
make: *** [vmlinux] Error 2

I'm not too familiar with kernel making, but it LOOKS like that in the SMP 
section, it's looking for ACPI information, when it SHOULD be looking for APCI. 
(I don't even have ACPI (Power Management) enabled.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Make menuconfig, set your options up as normal. If you have an SMP machine, 
turn SMP off (for purpose of this test.) Turn ON the new option "APIC support 
on uniprocessors". 
Then compile the kernel as necessary (make dep/clean/bzImage). It should error 

Actual Results:  > make[1]: *** [kallsyms] Error 1
> make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.9-31'
> make: *** [vmlinux] Error 2

I dont get a kernel.. If I disable the ACPI, it builds fine.

Expected Results:  To build the kernel with ACPI support on non SMP machines..

Additional info:

Can supply configuration file, and output to make bzImage if necessary. Have 
NOT tried it with make config or make xconfig, may or may not be present there.
