Subject: [PATCH v11 16/18] x86/fsgsbase/64: Enable FSGSBASE on 64bit by default and add a chicken bit

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@...nel.org>

Now that FSGSBASE is fully supported, remove unsafe_fsgsbase, enable
FSGSBASE by default, and add nofsgsbase to disable it.

While this changes userspace visible ABI, we could not find a project
that would be affected by this. Few projects were contacted for input
and ack:

- 5-level EPT: http://lkml.kernel.org/r/9ddf602b-6c8b-8c1e-ab46-07ed12366593@redhat.com
