Subject: [PATCH 2/2] x86: Provide guards in uapi/asm/setup.h to prevent
 deletion by patch

Provide reinclusion guards in the empty uapi/asm/setup.h to make sure that the
patch program doesn't delete it.

However, should some part of asm/hw_setup.h actually be exported here, or,
possibly, should the entire uapi file be removed?  In v3.6, though the file
was marked for export to userspace, it had nothing outside of __KERNEL__.
