There is only one really enigmatic issue, it was reported that sandy
bridge laptop being unable to start APs. Koop stopped responding, so the
issue is not progresed.

My current idea is that a cause might be reduced intervals between
init/startup ipis due to x2apic not requiring wait for icr idle.

Anyway, I do not see it worth even discussing the revert or default'
frobbing for now.  The commit went mostly event-less for such kind
of change.
