Subject[PATCH 2/2] x86, AMD: Disable wrongly set X86_FEATURE_LAHF_LM CPUID bit
Date
fbd8b1819e80ac5a176d085fdddc3a34d1499318 turns off the bit for
/proc/cpuinfo. However, a proper fix would be to additionally turn off
the bit in the CPUID output so that future callers get correct CPU
features info. Do that by basically reversing what the BIOS wrongfully
does at boot.
