It is based on CPUID.
The low-level ACRN hypervisor can return the different output of CPUID
when several linux guests executes the CPUID instruction. Then it can
control whether x2apic is supported in one linux guest.

So we will leverage the X86_FEATURE_X2APIC bit from CPUID to indicate
whether the x2apic is supported in linux guest when ACRN hypervisor is
Is this fine to you?
