I don't like Gabriel's approach very much. Could we do something like
issue a syscall before executing a Windows region and then issue another
syscall when exiting? If so, we could switch the syscall entry point (ie
change MSR_LSTAR). I'm thinking something like a personality() syscall.
But maybe that would be too high an overhead.
