Subject[PATCH 4.9 15/44] s390/early: improve machine detection
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

From: Christian Borntraeger <borntraeger@de.ibm.com>

commit 03aa047ef2db4985e444af6ee1c1dd084ad9fb4c upstream.

Right now the early machine detection code check stsi 3.2.2 for "KVM"
and set MACHINE_IS_VM if this is different. As the console detection
uses diagnose 8 if MACHINE_IS_VM returns true this will crash Linux
early for any non z/VM system that sets a different value than KVM.
So instead of assuming z/VM, do not set any of MACHINE_IS_LPAR,
MACHINE_IS_VM, or MACHINE_IS_KVM.
