      Remove "noreplacement" kernel command line option. · 72538d85
      Linus Torvalds authored
      It is no longer valid to not replace instructions, since we depend on
      different behaviour depending on CPU capabilities.
      If you need to limit the capabilities of the replacements (because the
      boot CPU has features that non-boot CPU's do not have, for example), you
      need to explicitly disable those capabilities that are not shared across
      all CPU's.
      For example, if your boot CPU has FXSR, but other CPU's in your system
      do not, you need to use the "nofxsr" kernel command line, not disable
      instruction replacement per se.

      x86: use alternative instructions for fnsave/fxsave too · 2847e347
      Linus Torvalds authored
      This one ends up using an inline asm format that claims to read memory
      and then clobber it (rather than just write it directly), which made it
      easier to use the existing "alternative_input()" infrastructure support.
      Now the fxsave code matches the fxrstor.
