Very cool. Thanks for working on this!

From the Cloud perspective, 128 vCPUs is already obsolete. GCE's
n1-utlramem-160 VMs have 160 vCPUs where the maximum APIC ID is 231.
I'd definitely prefer an approach that scales to higher APIC IDs, like
Paolo's offset idea.

To Radim's point of real world performance testing, do you know what
is the primary source of multi-target IPIs? If it's TLB shootdowns we
might get a bigger bang for our buck with a PV TLB Shootdown.
