Actually, the intel manual recommends (but doesn't require) a wierd alignment
for the descriptors. It recommends aligning them at an address which is 2 MOD
4 to avoid possible alignment check faults in user mode. Not that I think we
can ever run into the problem, but we should probably obey the recommendation.
I'll fix this up as well.
