 [2.5.73] enable local APIC on P4
The current local APIC code refuses to enable the local APIC
on a P4 if the BIOS booted us with the local APIC disabled.
This patch removes this unnecessary restriction. Please apply.

Most P4 machines do boot with the local APIC enabled, but
Keith Owens reported that the P4 based Compaq Evo N800v
disables the local APIC, even though the machine actually
works if Linux enables it.

It is possible that some P4 machines with broken BIOSen
were saved by our refusal to enable the local APIC. We
can handle them via the DMI blacklist rules instead.

 [2.5.73] enable local APIC on P4

I did the same thing on my Presario. BIOS disable it by default.
