Subject: [PATCH v13 03/18] x86/CPU: Call detect_nopl() only on the BSP

From: Borislav Petkov <bp@...en8.de>

Make it use the setup_* variants and have it be called only on the BSP
and drop the call in generic_identify() - X86_FEATURE_NOPL will be
replicated to the APs through the forced caps. Helps keep the mess at a
manageable level.
