Subject: [PATCH 0/4] More PCID fixes

This fixes a 32-bit boot warning, a 32-bit boot oddity that seems
unsymtomatic right now, and a potential userspace corruption issue
across EFI calls if PCID is enabled.

With this series applied, the only remaining issue I'm aware of is
the paging-structure cache laziness problem.

I've tested SMP boot, suspend/resume, hotplug/unplug, and hibernate
on a 32-bit VM, a 64-bit VM, and a 64-bit laptop.  (Except hibernate
on the laptop -- my laptop can't resume from hibernation on *any*
kernel due to a userspace (systemd? Fedora overall integration?)

Andy Lutomirski (4):
  x86/mm: Factor out CR3-building code
  x86/mm/64: Stop using CR3.PCID == 0 in ASID-aware code
  x86/mm/32: Move setup_clear_cpu_cap(X86_FEATURE_PCID) earlier
  x86/mm/32: Load a sane CR3 before cpu_init() on secondary CPUs
