Subject[PATCH v3 32/75] x86/head/64: Reload GDT after switch to virtual addresses
Date
From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@suse.de>

Reload the GDT after switching to virtual addresses to make sure it will
not go away when the lower mappings are removed. This will also reload
the GDT for booting APs, which will need a working GDT too to handle #VC
exceptions.
