Merge branch 'x86/urgent' of git://

Pull x86 fixes from Peter Anvin:
 "A significantly larger than I'd like set of patches for just below the
  wire.  All of these, however, fix real problems.

  The one thing that is genuinely scary in here is the change of SMP
  initialization, but that *does* fix a confirmed hang when booting
  virtual machines.

  There is also a patch to actually do the right thing about not
  offlining a CPU when there are not enough interrupt vectors available
  in the system; the accounting was done incorrectly.  The worst case
  for that patch is that we fail to offline CPUs when we should (the new
  code is strictly more conservative than the old), so is not
  particularly risky.

  Most of the rest is minor stuff; the EFI patches are all about
  exporting correct information to boot loaders and kexec"
