Subject[PATCH resend -tip] x86,mcheck: Thermal monitoring depends on APIC being enabled
Add check if APIC is not disabled since thermal
monitoring depends on it. As only apic gets disabled
we should not try to install "thermal monitor" vector,
print out that thermal monitoring is enabled and etc...

Note that "Intel Correct Machine Check Interrupts" already
has such a check.

Also I decided to not add cpu_has_apic check into mcheck_intel_therm_init
since even if it'll call apic_read on disabled apic -- it's safe
here and allow us to save a few code bytes.

Please review. This should close a number of WARNs triggered
by intel_init_thermal when apic gets disabled state.

Ie the WARNs like
