Subject[PATCH 4.4 05/78] x86/mm: Add a noinvpcid boot option to turn off INVPCID
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@kernel.org>

commit d12a72b844a49d4162f24cefdab30bed3f86730e upstream.

This adds a chicken bit to turn off INVPCID in case something goes
wrong. It's an early_param() because we do TLB flushes before we
parse __setup() parameters.
