Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL for 4.9 05/52] x86/platform/uv/BAU: Fix HUB errors by
 remove initial write to sw-ack register

From: Andrew Banman <abanman@....com>

[ Upstream commit 1b17c6df852851b40c3c27c66b8fa2fd99cf25d8 ]

Writing to the software acknowledge clear register when there are no
pending messages causes a HUB error to assert. The original intent of this
write was to clear the pending bits before start of operation, but this is
an incorrect method and has been determined to be unnecessary.
