KVM expects APIC ID to be in upper 8 bits of the register then.
Guest APIC mode does not come into play if the x2APIC API is not
enabled.  This is to keep compatibility with old KVMs that used xAPIC
format regardless of APIC mode.

The latter.  KVM stores the 8 bits in an appropriate format, but it
doesn't really matter to QEMU: the exchange format without enabled
x2APIC API is defined to be the xAPIC one.  (KVM used to keep always
keep ID in xAPIC format and trapped x2APIC ID reads to shift the value.)
