RongQing reported that there are some X2APIC id 0xffffffff in his machine's ACPI MADT table, which made the number of possible CPU inaccuracy.
The reason is that the ACPI X2APIC parser has no sanity check for apicid 0xffffffff, which is an invalid id in all APIC types. See "Intel® 64 Architecture x2APIC Specification", Chapter 2.4.1. Add a sanity check to acpi_parse_x2apic() which ignores the invalid id.
