hm, actually - the order is correct so no need to rebase any of this.

We've got two topics: tip/x86/apic and tip/x86/x2apic.

both tip/x86/x2apic and tip/x86/apic were OK standalone. I merged them
together in this commit:

commit 453c1404c5273a30d715e5a83372a78cff70b6d9
Merge: a208f37... 35b6805...

Merge branch 'x86/apic' into x86/x2apic

and that didnt work straight away, so i applied your fixups - but that's
the next commit. So there's only a single commit that is not bisectable
and that's OK.

so unless there's some other breakage i missed, this should be fine and
no need to resend/rebase anything.
