Subject[PATCH 4.4 62/87] kaiser: Set _PAGE_NX only if supported
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Lepton Wu <ytht.net@gmail.com>

This finally resolve crash if loaded under qemu + haxm. Haitao Shan pointed
out that the reason of that crash is that NX bit get set for page tables.
It seems we missed checking if _PAGE_NX is supported in kaiser_add_user_map
