http://www.intel.com/design/chipsets/datashts/29056601.pdf says that it
should be programmed to unique value. I checked 4 machines on 3 of them
this was the case on one (AMD) there are 3 IOAPICs and they all overlap with

The currant code was written when we could only dream supporting 16 cpus
and back than it did correct thing, but now it just broken. QEMU do not
care about IOAPIC ID for sure so I am OK with the patch.

1 from 4 for me :)
