Hi Shuah,

This was change was a quick and dirty fix to avoid inadvertent errors
reported by run_kselftest.sh on arches unsupported by livepatch.

Ideally we would check CONFIG_TEST_LIVEPATCH instead of the arches
directly:  This would allow distros to "turn off" this particular set of
selftests through the kernel configuration.  Also, setting 
CONFIG_TEST_LIVEPATCH=m determines whether supporting livepatch
self-test modules (in lib/livepatch) will be built.  Without it, these
self-test scripts are useless.

However, I didn't see that $(CONFIG_TEST_LIVEPATCH) was set when
invoking tools/testing/selftests/livepatch/Makefile.  I don't know how
tools/testing/selftests/vDSO/Makefile is using $(CONFIG_X86_32) but
perhaps that isn't working either.

Any suggestions?  Should we modify the test scripts themselves to deal
with a !CONFIG_TEST_LIVEPATCH environment?

Thanks,

-- Joe
