    m->mpc_apicid is an 8-bit type; MAX_APICS can be 256. The above fix
    properly compares two integral expressions of equal width.

    Also, as MAX_APICS-1 is reserved for the broadcast physical APIC ID
    (it's 0xF for serial APIC and 0xFF for xAPIC) the small semantic change
    here is correct.
