xen/x86: don't initialize cpu_data[]'s apicid field on generic code

Afaict, this is not only redundant with the intialization done in
drivers/xen/core/smpboot.c, but actually results - at least for
secondary CPUs - in the Xen-specific value written to be later
overwritten with whatever the generic code determines (with no
guarantee that the two values are identical).
