No. The APIC setup code does at least one unconditional read to get the
APIC version before deciding the APIC is disabled/not present. In my
testing that's the only access to the APIC which happens under Xen, but
it wouldn't surprise me if there were other stray accesses with
different configurations (like the P4_THERMAL stuff).

It gets copied into the real smp_ops early on, so it isn't needed after
that.

OK.

Er, yes, that does look odd.
