OS/2 on the 4th gen. Core i (Haswell)

The new Haswell CPU from Intel is now available and therefore we could run some tests with this new CPU. The tested model of the CPU was a Core i5-4570. OS/2 can work on this kind of CPU but at the moment it looks like there is a SMP problem with the ACPI PSD driver that prevents the use of all CPU cores, thus with only one core enabled everything functions correctly and the system boots just fine.
