Subject[PATCH] x86/xen: disable nosmt in Xen guests
Date
When running as a Xen guest selecting "nosmt" either via command line
or implicitly via default settings makes no sense, as the guest has no
clue about the real system topology it is running on. With Xen it is
the hypervisor's job to ensure the proper bug mitigations are active
regarding smt settings.

So when running as a Xen guest set cpu_smt_control to "not supported"
in order to avoid disabling random vcpus.
