Subject[59/80] KVM: VMX: Fix host GDT.LIMIT corruption
2.6.35-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let us know.

------------------


From: Avi Kivity <avi@redhat.com>

commit 3444d7da1839b851eefedd372978d8a982316c36 upstream.

vmx does not restore GDT.LIMIT to the host value, instead it sets it to 64KB.
This means host userspace can learn a few bits of host memory.

Fix by reloading GDTR when we load other host state.
