Subject: [PATCH RESEND v2] x86: warn on native_io_delay() before DMI scan

Writing to IO port 0x80 in native_io_delay() causes system lockups on
some laptops. This is handled by io_delay_init(), which scans DMI info
and changes io_delay_type on these laptops.

Therefore, calling native_io_delay() / outb_p() / inb_p() / etc. before
io_delay_init() may cause problems there and may constitute a kernel
bug. Warn if this happens.
