I'll improve both commit messages.

IMHO the best way is that we should always use a boolean for dest mode
internally because it's always a true or false flag, and we only
convert it to other forms when needed (e.g. when applying that bit to
an IOAPIC entry). But here I think I'll go with the 3rd option to
avoid code churns (I think it's also what Vitaly suggested as the 1st
option).

I'll fix that too.

(I also missed suggested-by/reported-by for Vitaly)

Thank you both for your reviews,
