Here is what done at moment. I've grepped x86 arch for apic_write and
except thermal monitoring (the patch is already sent) all other callers
do check if apic is active (either via cpu_has_apic or disable_apic).
So I think we may safely use unconditional warning if apic_write with
disabled apic is called.

Please take a look -- I would be glad to hear any comments/complains.

There is unclear moment for me with "SGI Visual Workstation" which
has ack_cobalt_irq and calls for apic_write which could trigger this
warning.

x86,apic: Warn on noop_apic_write unconditionally

In apic noop'ified we should never call for write operation.
Otherwise it's a caller bug (we should be WARNed about).

Also add a comment on noop_apic_read WARN conditions.
