Bug description:
  In case when BIOS is populating MADT wiht both x2apic and local apic entries (as per ACPI spec), kernel builds it's processor table
  in the following order: BSP, X2APIC, local APIC, resulting in processors on the same core are not separated by core count.

  Platform: KNL

  this is fixed in 4.4 kernel with:
  d81056b x86, ACPI: Handle apic/x2apic entries in MADT in correct order
  9b3fedd ACPI / tables: Add acpi_subtable_proc to ACPI table parsers
