3.12-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "H. Peter Anvin" <hpa@linux.intel.com>

commit 03bbd596ac04fef47ce93a730b8f086d797c3021 upstream.

If SMAP support is not compiled into the kernel, don't enable SMAP in
CR4 -- in fact, we should clear it, because the kernel doesn't contain
the proper STAC/CLAC instructions for SMAP support.

Found by Fengguang Wu's test system.
