runqemu: Add workaround for APIC hang on pre 4.15 kernels on qemux86
On pre 4.15 host kernels, an APIC window emulation bug can cause qemu to hang. On 64 bit we can use the x2apic, for 32 bit, we just have to disable the other timer sources and rely on kvm-clock. [YOCTO #12301] Signed-off-by: Richard Purdie <richard.purdie@linuxfoundation.org>
