x86: prevent binutils from being "smart" and generating NOPLs for us
binutils, contrary to documented behaviour, will generate long NOPs (a P6-or-higher instruction which is broken on at least some VIA chips, Virtual PC/Virtual Server, and some versions of Qemu) depending on the -mtune= option, which is not supposed to change architectural behaviour. Pass an explicit override to the assembler, in case ends up passing the -mtune= parameter to gas (gcc 4.3.0 does not appear to.) Signed-off-by: H. Peter Anvin <hpa@zytor.com>
