It does not use the APIC mechanism at all. It only needs the GSI value
from the IOAPIC and LAPIC so that the ACPI can work. Then the ACPI _PRT values
are used to setup the GSI's (via hypercalls).

It could also at startup copy the original values and stick them in these copies.
That does mean using the memory allocator to allocate X copies for X IOAPICS. I
don't think the memory allocator is active at that stage since we using fixmaps.
Thoughts?
