"kvm_no_apic_vcpu" is badly named. It reads as "true if no vCPU has
APIC" but it means "true if some vCPU has no APIC". The latter is
obviously false in the beginning, because there is no vCPUs at all.

Perhaps a better name would be "kvm_has_noapic_vcpu" (for once,
smashingwordstogether is more readable than the alternative).

but it seems to be a documented behavior. From
