Looks better, but I need to read more context to find out where the
apic_ops variable comes from; I'll read the list for patches.

You are correct in that we will want to use the same wait_icr_idle
routine as native hardware; it's not clear from just this patch how that
happens.

Also, the VMI operations are sensitive to parameter order because they
interface with an ABI at the other end. I need to check the parameter
order for apic read / write is still consistent with the ABI.
