Subject[150/289] KVM: Correct ordering of ldt reload wrt fs/gs reload
2.6.36-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------

From: Avi Kivity <avi@redhat.com>

commit 0a77fe4c188e25917799f2356d4aa5e6d80c39a2 upstream.

If fs or gs refer to the ldt, they must be reloaded after the ldt. Reorder
the code to that effect.

Userspace code that uses the ldt with kvm is nonexistent, so this doesn't fix
a user-visible bug.
