Yep. I see it now. We have some of the silliest code. We only
go down this path for certain revs of Intel cpus, and I double checked
this change on an AMD cpu which explains why I missed hitting this
case.

The call path that is new in they bisected commit is:
MP_ioapic_info()
mp_register_ioapic()
io_apic_unique_id()
io_apic_get_unique_id()
get_physical_broadcast()
modern_apic()
lapic_get_version()
apic_read(APIC_LVR)


Tvrtko can you test this patch and verify it fixes the kvm booting
issue?

This patch just maps the lapic early in the mmparse.c just like we
do in acpi/boot.c when parsing the acpi tables.
