from SDV Vol 3a Section 17.27.1

The remote read delivery mode provided in the 82489DX and local APIC for
Pentium processors is not supported in the local APIC in the Pentium 4, Intel
Xeon, and P6 family processors.

It looks like it is not supported (officially atleast) even in APIC bus
architectures. Only the Pentium integrated APIC seems to be the exception.

I have to probably use maxlvt check, to selectively enable this debug output
for Pentium and !APIC_INTEGRATED check for 82489DX.
