[PATCH] Remove old "focus disabled" chipset errata workaround

The new systems already use focus disabled and the comment was
completely outdated.

* Some unknown Intel IO/APIC (or APIC) errata are biting us with
* certain networking cards. If high frequency interrupts are
* happening on a particular IOAPIC pin, plus the IOAPIC routing
* entry is masked/unmasked at a high rate as well then sooner or
* later IOAPIC line gets 'stuck', no more interrupts are received
* from the device. If focus CPU is disabled then the hang goes
* away, oh well :-(
* [ This bug can be reproduced easily with a level-triggered
* PCI Ne2000 networking cards and PII/PIII processors, dual
* BX chipset. ]
* Actually disabling the focus CPU check just makes the hang less
* frequent as it makes the interrupt distributon model be more
* like LRU than MRU (the short-term load is more even across CPUs).
* See also the comment in end_level_ioapic_irq(). --macro
#if 1
/* Enable focus processor (bit==0) */
/* Disable focus processor (bit==1) */
/* We always use processor focus */
* Set spurious IRQ vector
