Subject[patch 44/51] KVM: Make EFER reads safe when EFER does not exist
2.6.29-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------
From: Avi Kivity <avi@redhat.com>

commit e286e86e6d2042d67d09244aa0e05ffef75c9d54 upstream.

Some processors don't have EFER; don't oops if userspace wants us to
read EFER when we check NX.
