Subject[PATCH v2 2/2] x86/apic: Set up through-local-APIC on boot CPU's LINT0 if 'noapic' specified
Kdump kernel will become very slow if 'noapic' is specified. Normal kernel

In normal kernel the legacy irq mode is enabled in BIOS. If it is virtual
virtual wire mode, the local-APIC has been enabled and set as
through-local-APIC. Though specifying 'noapic' in normal kernel it still
have the virtual wire mode working. In kdump kernel, local-APIC is disabled
in crashed kernel before jump to kdump kernel since commit 522e664644
("x86/apic: Disable I/O APIC before shutdown of the local APIC"). So we
need set up through-local-APIC on boot CPU explicitly in setup_local_APIC()
if 'noapic' specified.

Do it now.
