    ACPI: Add support to parse 2nd MADT
    
    When a BIOS bug presents multiple APIC/MADTs,
    Linux currently uses the 1st and ignores the 2nd.
    
    But some machines work better if we use the 2nd.
    
    http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7465
    
    Add a warning and boot parameter "acpi_apic_instance=2"
    to allow parsing the 2nd.
    
    No change to default behaviour in this patch.
