Btw, tglx suggested something else the other day: warn when we're
changing boot_cpu_data x86_capability bits *after* alternatives have
run. The reasoning behind it being that potentially some patching
static_cpu_has() has done won't be correct anymore.

And it is pretty cheap to do it, it fires nicely on the 32-bit config
with LGUEST=y.
