Hmm. That's a regular intel i5 Sandybridge CPU. Which certainly has NX.

Hmm. secondary_startup_64 isn't __initcode, is it? I think it's used
for resuming the other CPU's too and for CPU hotplug. Yes/no?

If so early_pmd_flags shouldn't be __initdata, I think.

Michal, does it work if you don't do the revert, but just remove the
__initdata instead?
