Subject: [PATCH 3.16 76/86] x86/speculation/mds: Add SMT warning message

3.16.68-rc1 review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Josh Poimboeuf <jpoimboe@...hat.com>

commit 39226ef02bfb43248b7db12a4fdccb39d95318e3 upstream.

MDS is vulnerable with SMT.  Make that clear with a one-time printk
whenever SMT first gets enabled.
