Subject[patch 20/29] x86: mark read_crX() asm code as volatile
2.6.23-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us
know.

------------------
From: Kirill Korotaev <dev@openvz.org>

patch c1217a75ea102d4e69321f210fab60bc47b9a48e in mainline.

x86: mark read_crX() asm code as volatile

Some gcc versions (I checked at least 4.1.1 from RHEL5 & 4.1.2 from gentoo)
can generate incorrect code with read_crX()/write_crX() functions mix up,
due to cached results of read_crX().

The small app for x8664 below compiled with -O2 demonstrates this
(i686 does the same thing):
