The detection of local APIC and IO APICs is quite isolated from each

view. I've of course not tested this in any way, so those are only
observations by a quick look at the code. I cannot speak about Linux.

I believe Linux should be able to handle this as well:

I also removed ioapic entries from hvmloader's ACPI builder and the (HVM) guest came up with no immediately visible issues.
