I did this, but unfortunately it ends up having to individually map all
four pieces of cpu_entry_area. They all need different permissions and
while theoretically we could do TSS+exception-stacks in the same call,
they're not next to each other:

GDT: R/O
TSS: R/W at least because of trampoline stack
entry code: EXEC+R/O
exception stacks: R/W
