x86/mpx: Fix instruction decoder condition
MPX decodes instructions in order to tell which bounds register
was violated. Part of this decoding involves looking at the "REX
prefix" which is a special instrucion prefix used to retrofit
support for new registers in to old instructions.
The X86_REX_*() macros are defined to return actual bit values:
#define X86_REX_R(rex) ((rex) & 4)
*not* boolean values. However, the MPX code was checking for
them like they were booleans. This might have led to us
mis-decoding the "REX prefix" and giving false information out to
userspace about bounds violations. X86_REX_B() actually is bit 1,
so this is really only broken for the X86_REX_X() case.
Fix the conditionals up to tolerate the non-boolean values.
