Bug Description

Currently, nova doesn't enable apic setting in its libvirt driver by default. This would lead Windows guest to crash on Xen or KVM. So we need a fix to set apic in libvirt xml for Xen or KVM guest.

Fix proposed to branch: master

    libvirt: enable apic setting for Xen or KVM guest.

    Bug 1086352

    Currently, nova doesn't enable apic setting for Xen or KVM guest
    in its libvirt driver. Windows guests would not boot successful in
    such case. This patch adds apic setting in libvirt driver for Xen
    or KVM guest, which would fix this problem. A check is also added
    to libvirt guest config test case for this patch.
