Well, one option that may be the easiest is to just change all
of the linux head.S files to have the three nops again.  When we
split these file apart a while back, we just removed everything that
wasn't necessary.  Just put a note in those files why they are
present.  They don't cost anything since these are exception vector
locations or temporary storage locations for special purposes.
