So should all of commit ("c109bf95992b x86/cpufeature: Remove
cpu_has_pge") just be reverted (and then marked for stable)?
Or do we have some alternate plan?
This has apparently been going on for a long while (it got merged into
4.7), but presumably it only actually _matters_ if lguest is enabled
and used and we've triggered that lguest_arch_host_init() code.
Maybe it's the lguest games with PGE that need to be removed?
