Subject[PATCH 3.2 040/115] x86/iopl: Fix iopl capability check on Xen PV
3.2.80-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@kernel.org>

commit c29016cf41fe9fa994a5ecca607cf5f1cd98801e upstream.

iopl(3) is supposed to work if iopl is already 3, even if
unprivileged. This didn't work right on Xen PV. Fix it.
