Note that this is the generic x2apic work from Intel, not the SGI/UV
specific x2apic stuff. The SGI-specific code is upstream already. (and
as i understand it was based on an earlier version of the Intel code)

The Intel x2apic code was submitted before the merge window but was
indeed pushed to linux-next during the window because that's when its
integration became fully ready. We'd rather not hold the whole merge
window and linux-next hostage with not fully ready stuff :-)
