Subject: [PATCH 5.4 16/17] KVM: x86: clflushopt should be treated as a no-op by emulation

From: David Edmondson <david.edmondson@...cle.com>

commit 51b958e5aeb1e18c00332e0b37c5d4e95a3eff84 upstream.

The instruction emulator ignores clflush instructions, yet fails to
support clflushopt. Treat both similarly.

Fixes: 13e457e0eebf ("KVM: x86: Emulator does not decode clflush well")
