Right, we already take this into consideration at the design phase. 
Fortunately, Only the DSDT is needed for Px state, which is unmodifed, so that 
is Ok for Px support.

And for the acpi id to apic id maping, we dedicatedly parse the MADT before the 
acpi_update_lsapic, so the maping is also correct.
