Thanks for this. I've been chasing APIC related hangs booting images
with qemu-system-x86_64 on 4.13 and 4.14 host kernels where the guest
doesn't have x2apic enabled.

I can confirm this fixes issues the Yocto Project automated testing
infrastructure was seeing.

I'd like to add support for backporting this in stable.

Cheers,

Richard
