I pulled this and then pushed out without test-compiling, because I'm
not used to the x86 trees causing problems. Usually they've gone
through a lot of build tests etc.

But dammit, it's broken:

  arch/x86/kernel/head_64.o: In function `early_idt_handler':
  (.init.text+0x124): undefined reference to `X86_TRAP_NMI'

because X86_TRAP_NMI is an enum, not a #define.

This can not have worked in your tree either, because that thing has
never been anything *but* an enum. So I'm pissed off. This patch was
clearly never tested anywhere. Why was it sent to me?

Grr. Consider yourself cursed at. Saatana.
