There are many functions invoke apic_debug(), which is defined
as a null function by default, and that's incovenient for debuging
lapic.

This patch allows setting apic debug according to add a apic_dbg
parameter of kvm.

s/int/bool to get this to compile.  And module params of this nature
should be tagged __read_mostly.

I don't think we want to do this unless there is a very, very strong
argument to do so.  The reason debug messages like this are #ifdef'd
out is because they add conditional branches all over the place and
measurably increase the code size.  E.g.: this patch would increase
KVM's code footprint by 1100+ bytes:

 [Nr] Name              Type            Address          Off    Size   ES Flg Lk Inf Al

vs.
