Eduardo Habkost - Oct. 3, 2012, 1:29 p.m.
This changes FW_CFG_MAX_CPUS and FW_CFG_NUMA to use apic_id_for_cpu(),
so the NUMA table can be based on the APIC IDs, instead of CPU index
(SeaBIOS knows nothing about CPU indexes, just APIC IDs).

Changes v1 -> v2:
 - Get PC object as argument
 - Add more detailed comments explaining the reason for FW_CFG_MAX_CPUS
   not being simply 'max_cpus'
