While I'm not fan either; I think that will be worse still, because it
splits the information over multiple files.

The advantage of this form is that it is clear how long the instructions
are, which is important for the patching. These immediates have to be
shorter than 5 bytes because they overwrite the CALL/JMP to the paravirt
function.

/me eyes .cpu_usergs_sysret64 and goes wtf..
