For GCC, there is a rather more efficient way of doing this, which
allows the compiler much more flexibility than forcing the use of a mov
instruction.

I don't know how much you care in Linux, but in Xen it makes a massive
code-volume difference, as that construct is the core of current
(because we can't use %fs/%gs).
