ACK the concept - the logic to compile up APIC support is circuitous to say the least.

Personally think we should just always compile up the APIC code if the arch declares support and let the bootstrap code interrogate CPUID. Who in 2015 is really running a system without an APIC/IO-APIC and tip-of-tree Linux and does that one user care about adding 12k to her kernel ? I suspect not and in any case can force the APIC off with a command line argument
