Subject[patch 58/76] x86: dont use P6_NOPs if compiling with CONFIG_X86_GENERIC
-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.
---------------------

From: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>

x86: don't use P6_NOPs if compiling with CONFIG_X86_GENERIC

P6_NOPs are definitely not supported on some VIA CPUs, and possibly
(unverified) on AMD K7s. It is also the only thing that prevents a
686 kernel from running on Transmeta TM3x00/5x00 (Crusoe) series.

The performance benefit over generic NOPs is very small, so when
building for generic consumption, avoid using them.
