x86/smpboot: Skip delays during SMP initialization similar to Xen

Remove the per-CPU delays during SMP initialization, which seems
to be possible on newer architectures with an x2APIC.

Xen does this since 2011. In fact, this commit is basically a
combination of the following Xen commits. The first removes the
delays, the second fixes an issue with the removal:

    x86: Remove timeouts from INIT-SIPI-SIPI sequence when using x2apic.

    Some of the timeouts are pointless since they're waiting for the ICR
    to ack the IPI delivery and that doesn't happen on x2apic.
    The others should be benign (and are suggested in the SDM) but
    removing them makes AP bringup much more reliable on some test boxes.

    X86: Add a delay between INIT & SIPIs for tboot AP bring-up in X2APIC case

    Without this delay, Xen could not bring APs up while working with
    TXT/tboot, because tboot needs some time in APs to handle INIT before
    becoming ready for receiving SIPIs (this delay was removed as part of
    c/s 23724 by Tim Deegan).
