Once "x86, mm: Report state of NX protections during boot"[1] is in the Lucid
kernel, "UBUNTU: SAUCE: [x86] implement cs-limit nx-emulation for ia32"
will not cleanly apply.  This patch is a replacement for that one.

The upstream fix functionally contains the following commits, which can
be dropped at the next rebase:

"UBUNTU: SAUCE: Fix nx_enable reporting"
"UBUNTU: SAUCE: [x86] fix report of cs-limit nx-emulation"
