[PATCH] x86/head_32: Fix overflow warning with 32-bit binutils

From: Borislav Petkov

From: Borislav Petkov <bp@xxxxxxx>

When building the kernel with 32-bit binutils built with support only
for the i386 target, we get the following warning:

arch/x86/kernel/head_32.S:66: Warning: shift count out of range (32 is not between 0 and 31)

The problem is that in that case, binutils' internal type representation
is 32-bit wide and the shift range overflows.

In order to fix this, manipulate the shift expression which creates the
4GiB constant to not overflow the shift count.
