Subject[patch] tls-2.5.31-D9

okay, here is YAGL. (Yet Another GDT Layout)

3 TLS entries, 9 cycles copying and no branches in the context-switch
path. The patch also adds Christoph's suggestion and renames
modify_ldt_ldt_s (yuck!) to user_desc.

(all patches i posted were test-compiled and test-booted against
2.5.31-vanilla.)

Ingo
