Subject[PATCH 07/19] xen: disable PAT
Date
From: Ian Campbell <ian.campbell@citrix.com>

Xen imposes a particular PAT layout on all paravirtual guests which
does not match the layout Linux would like to use.

Force PAT to be disabled until this is resolved.

Signed-off-by: Ian Campbell <ian.campbell@citrix.com>
