Merge branch 'x86-urgent-for-linus' of git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/tip/tip
Pull x86 fixes from Peter Anvin:
"Three groups of fixes:
1. Make sure we don't execute the early microcode patching if family
< 6, since it would touch MSRs which don't exist on those
families, causing crashes.
2. The Xen partial emulation of HyperV can be dealt with more
gracefully than just disabling the driver.
3. More EFI variable space magic. In particular, variables hidden
from runtime code need to be taken into account too."
