Subject: [PATCH v2 0/3] x86/asm: More pinning

This adds CR0 pinning (for WP), and cleans up the CR4 pin to avoid
taking an exception from WARN before fixing up the desired pin.
Additionally adds lkdtm test (which depends on the CR4 patch, otherwise
I'd send it via Greg's tree).

- include brown-paper-bag fix to lkdtm test in v1
- clean up comments
