[Xen-devel] [PATCH v4 10/14] x86/cpu/intel: remove not needed paravirt_enabled() for f00f work around

The X86_BUG_F00F work around is responsible for fixing up the error
generated on attempted F00F exploitation from an OOPS to a SIGILL.
There is no reason why this code should not be allowed to run on
PV guest on a F00F-affected CPU -- it would simply never trigger.
The pv_enabled() check was there only to avoid printing the f00f
workaround, so removing the check is purely a cosmetic change.
