Subject[PATCH 00/16] Entry stuff, in decent shape now
Date
This sets up stack switching, including for SYSCALL.  I think it's
in decent shape.

Known issues:
- KASAN is likely to be busted. This could be fixed either by teaching
KASAN that cpu_entry_area contains valid stacks (I have no clue how
to go about doing this) or by rigging up the IST entry code to switch
RSP to point to the direct-mapped copy of the stacks before calling
into non-KASAN-excluded C code.

- 32-bit kernels are failing the sigreturn_32 test. But they're also
failing without the patches, so I'm not sure this is a bug in the
series per se. Needs further investigation. (Off the top of my head,
this could be further fallout from Thomas's IDT rework.)

- I think we're going to want a way to turn the stack switching on and
off either at boot time or at runtime. It should be fairly straightforward
to make it work.

- I think the ORC unwinder isn't so good at dealing with stack overflows.
It bails too early (I think), resulting in lots of ? entries. This
isn't a regression with this series -- it's just something that could
be improved.

Changes:
- This is quite massively changed from last time.
- 32-bit seems to build and mostly work
- KASAN is less broken now
