Default Revert "KVM: VMX: Fix KVM_SET_SREGS with big real mode

From: Joseph Salisbury <joseph.salisbury@canonical.com>

BugLink: http://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1045027

== Quantal Justification ==
This bug is a regression in 3.5.0-13. With this commit applied, iPXE kills kvm with KVM: entry failed, hardware error 0x80000021. This commit is applied to upstream v3.6. However, 3.6 has had a lot more (unbackportable) work in this area. Upstream will see if this can be fixed, if not, they will revert it.

== Fix ==
Revert of the following commit:
commit b398aa3174cdfd4d85964fa84004e53ce6a13cab
Author: Orit Wasserman <owasserm@redhat.com>
Date: Wed Aug 15 11:49:05 2012 +0300

KVM: VMX: Fix KVM_SET_SREGS with big real mode segments

== Test Case ==
A test kernel was built with this commit reverted. The bug reporter and others affected by this bug confirmed a revert fixes the issue.
