Will add help text to say this.

The x2APIC doc says:

The default will be for the BIOS to pass the control to the OS with the
local x2APICs in xAPIC mode if all x2APIC IDs reported by CPUID.0BH:EDX
are less than 255, and in x2APIC mode if there are any logical processor
reporting its x2APIC ID at 255 or greater.

So x2apic_preenabled will be true if there is an APIC ID greater then 255
and in this case we don't want to allow x2APIC use without IR even in KVM
for the reason you mention: IOAPIC and MSI will not be able to address
all CPUs. The reason to try to enable IR first is so that when KVM will
want to support more then 255 CPUs it will be possible to implement IR
device and use existing kernel without additional changes.

Good point. The patch should be fixed to require physical mode for x2apic.
