Sure. It will be fixed.

I will refine the commit log and only talk about "why" a changed is added.

Make sense. I will add some description in patch 0 for the Kconfig
description.

Currently the x2apic is not enabled in the first step.
Next step it needs to check the cpu info reported by ACRN hypervisor to
determine whether the x2apic should be supported.
How about using the below comments?
" x2apic is not supported now. Later it will check the cpu info to
determine whether the x2apic can be supported or not."

Thanks
