Subject[PATCH 4.4 28/86] x86/entry: spell EBX register correctly in documentation
Date
4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

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

[ Upstream commit 75ca5b22260ef7b5ce39c6d521eee8b4cba44703 ]

As EBS does not mean anything reasonable in the context it is used, it
seems like a misspelling for EBX.
