It seems APICv is available on IvyBridge-EP (Xeon E5/E7v2) only, not for
E3v2 :-(
Furthermore, if I didn't miss anything in the datasheets, no currently
available E3 Xeon offers local APIC virtualization. Can somebody of the
xperts confirm that?

I wasn't able to find out how to do that.
Any hints highly appreciated!
