Subject: [PATCH] x86, hweight: Fix UML boot crash

Obviously UML cannot stomach callee reg-saving trickery
introduced with d61931d89be506372d01a90d1755f6d0a9fafe2d (x86:
Add optimized popcnt variants) and oopses during boot:
http://marc.info/?l=linux-kernel&m=127522065202435&w=2

Go ahead and fall back to the software hweight* routines on UML.
