rstor_regs_ret_user

still sounds pretty ok to me and it is shorter and it is using the
*RSTOR spelling the respective FPU insns use, so should be recognizable. :-)

And the other one could be

rstor_regs_ret_kernel

of course.

testb

ditto for the other spot.

Why aren't we exploding here unconditionally? I mean, we don't want to
return with RPL != 3 CS for whatever reason...

I guess here too, as a sanity-check. TEST and Jcc should be very cheap
compared to everything else jumping-through-hoops we'll be doing :-\
