Subject[PATCH v2 0/8] x86: infrastructure to enable FSGSBASE
Date
Given feedbacks from [1], it was asked to make first a few
patches ready as soon as possible. To make FSGSBASE facilitated,
some helper functions and refactoring work are incorporated.
Besides that, it includes Andy's fix for accurate FS/GS base read
and cleanup for the vDSO initialization.

Changes from V1:
* Rename the x86-64 CPU_NUMBER segment from PER_CPU
* Add i386 CPU_NUMBER equivalent to x86-64 at GDT entry 23
* Add additional helper function to store CPU number
