There's a distinct lack of touching do_double_fault(). It appears to me
that you'll instantly trigger #DF when you #PF, because the #PF handler
itself will not be able to run.

And then obviously you have to be very careful to make sure #DF can,
_at_all_times_ run, otherwise you'll tripple-fault and we all know what
that does.
