I re-tested ldt_gdt_64 again locally and in testing LAB. The test
failed again so I think this is a regression. I did the bisection
which resulted in

2c8e9099aecec2baaac8d34c7b823493f2d0eeed is the first bad commit

x86/ldt: Prevent LDT inheritance on exec

commit a4828f81037f491b2cc986595e3a969a6eeb2fb5 upstream.

Reverting this commit makes he ldt_gdt_64 pass again. However it's
worth to mention that the test uses a pre-build version of kselftest
from 4.14 (sources here:
https://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/linux-4.14.tar.xz). The
offending commit also changed tools/testing/selftests/x86/ldt_gdt.c. I
re-tested original build using this version of kselftests and the
ldt_gdt_64 passes (as expected). This makes me thinking whether using
the 'old' version of kselftests is a good idea.

To conclude, nothing to be done to 4.14.10. All tests passed on x86
