From: Wanpeng Li <wanpeng...@hotmail.com>

I observed that kvmvapic(to optimize flexpriority=N or AMD) is used 
to boost TPR access when testing kvm-unit-test/eventinj.flat tpr case
on my haswell desktop (w/ flexpriority, w/o APICv). Commit (8d14695f9542 
x86, apicv: add virtual x2apic support) disable virtual x2apic mode 
completely if w/o APICv, and the author also told me that windows guest
can't enter into x2apic mode when he developed the APICv feature several 
years ago. However, it is not truth currently, Interrupt Remapping and 
vIOMMU is added to qemu and the developers from Intel test windows 8 can 
work in x2apic mode w/ Interrupt Remapping enabled recently. 

This patch enables TPR shadow for virtual x2apic mode to boost 
windows guest in x2apic mode even if w/o APICv.

Can pass the kvm-unit-test.
