Static property won't work here as it should show APIC ID
depending on current CPU mode.

I could make it readonly property on respin,
and set apic.id/initial_apic_id directly from CPU.
Change would be
   - apic_common_set_id()
   + apic_common::set_apic_id() callback
It won't get us less LOC, more likely it will take even more
code to do so.
As it's in this patch, it's at least consistent in a way
values are get/set. And effectively it's readonly due to check:

+    if (dev->realized) {
+        qdev_prop_set_after_realize(dev, name, errp);
+        return;
+    }

as external user can see only realized apic device.
