Subject[PATCH] [25/99] i8k: Avoid lahf in 64-bit code
Date
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Luca Tettamanti <kronos.it@gmail.com>
commit bc1f419c76a2d6450413ce4349f4e4a07be011d5 upstream.

i8k uses lahf to read the flag register in 64-bit code; early x86-64
CPUs, however, lack this instruction and we get an invalid opcode
exception at runtime.
Use pushf to load the flag register into the stack instead.
