    Thanks looks good. This should fix the unexplained
    hang for various people. Logical<->apicid is actually ok, the low
    level _mask function takes care of that (it differs depending on the
    APIC mode anyways)

    There are some style problems, but that can be fixed later.

    How did you track that nasty it down?
