Correct, I realize it changes the ABI, but I believe that is the right 
thing to do while we can, specially, since we need to fix the EFER for
NX anyways. Looking at the code, it appears this would be the final
cleanup for this ABI... :)..

However, if that's not possible, I suppose we can just leave it as is
too for the SC bit.
