Sigh, sorry - please disregard the pull request.

What happened is that the cleanup patch below introduced that warning
- and this morning i noticed that warning and i thought i introduced
an ugly warning upstream and did a quick fix in that branch - but it
didnt actually need any fixing (and in fact it broke the build).

So upstream is fine and doesnt need any fix.

Subject: [PATCH] x86: clean up rdtsc_barrier() use

Impact: cleanup

Move rdtsc_barrier() use to vsyscall_64.c where it's relied on,
and point out its role in the context of its use.
