Subject[PATCHv3 2/5] x86/boot/compressed/64: Print error if 5-level paging is not supported
Date
We cannot proceed booting if the machine doesn't support the paging mode
kernel was compiled for.

Getting error the usual way -- via validate_cpu() -- is not going to
work. We need to enable appropriate paging mode before that, otherwise
kernel would triple-fault during KASLR setup.

This code will go away once we get support for boot-time switching
between paging modes.
