One thing worth noting is that performance of this whole series is
going to be abysmal due to the complete lack of 32-bit PCID. Maybe
any kernel built with this option set that runs on a CPU that has the
PCID bit set in CPUID should print a big fat warning like "WARNING:
you are using 32-bit PTI on a 64-bit PCID-capable CPU. Your
performance will increase dramatically if you switch to a 64-bit
kernel."
