Subject[RFC 03/15] x86_64: Reference zero-based percpu variables offset from gs
  * Since %gs is pointing to the pda, it will then also point to the per cpu
variables and can be accessed thusly:

%gs:[&per_cpu_xxxx - __per_cpu_start]

... and since __per_cpu_start == 0 then:

%gs:&per_cpu_var(xxx)

becomes the optimized effective address.
