This patch just use pr_debug() instead of pr_info() for ioapic/iosapic,
local apic/x2apic/sapic structures when scanning the MADT table to remove
those verbose information, but leave other structures unchanged.
One nitpick below, but don't respin over this, and don't do a fixup.

The whitespace changes makes each 1 line change into 3 line changes. In
these situations, I would chose to leave the whitespace alone to keep
the diffstat as small as possible. It makes it less likely to conflict
with other patches and easier to find context.

I think it's mostly better to use a consistent indentation style
regardless of the number in whitespace changes surrounding the change.

I think both would be fine. Since this patch only touches acpi core
code and ACPI maintainer Rafael already acked it, I will keep it as
it is.
