Subject[PATCH] [274/275] KVM: VMX: Fix host userspace gsbase corruption
Date
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
commit c8770e7ba63bb5dd8fe5f9d251275a8fa717fb78 upstream.

We now use load_gs_index() to load gs safely; unfortunately this also
changes MSR_KERNEL_GS_BASE, which we managed separately. This resulted
in confusion and breakage running 32-bit host userspace on a 64-bit kernel.

Fix by
- saving guest MSR_KERNEL_GS_BASE before we we reload the host's gs
- doing the host save/load unconditionally, instead of only when in guest
long mode

Things can be cleaned up further, but this is the minmal fix for now.
