Description/rationale/what you changed/why/etc. missing here...

In general your patches would be easier to review if you used diff -p

The patch is too big and should be split into smaller pieces.

I suppose all these system calls need separate review.
The indentation is unusual


I trust you tested they are all 32bit emulation clean.

You definitely add far too much code to the context switch.

Please fold the existing debug register check and the existing
io bitmap check together into a single bitmap test and do the individual checks
then only inside that if (). The non debug case is supposed to be fast
and not weighted down by so many checks.

The comment is not very enlightening.

Also this should be inside the usual bitmap checks.

No way. At best please a single shared test in the context switch as described above, not a multitude
of different hooks all over the fast paths. This should be in __switch_to()
