[PATCH 1/4] perf/core, x86: reduce number of CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC macros
The function reserve_pmc_hardware() and release_pmc_hardware() were hard to read. This patch improves readablity of the code by removing most of the CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC macros.

[patch 1/2] x86, apic: Allow to use sertain functions without APIC built-in support
In case even if the kernel is configured so that no APIC support is built-in we still may allow to use sertain apic functions as a dummy calls. In particular we start using it in perf-events code. Note that this is not that same as NOOP apic driver, the reverse -- we don't have apic code compiled at all. CC... 17 Mar 2010 06:53

[patch 2/2] x86, perf: Use apic_write unconditionally
Since apic_write maps to a plain noop in !CONFIG_X86_LOCAL_APIC case we're safe to remove this conditional compilation and clean code a bit.
