x86: make lazy %gs optional on x86_32
Impact: pt_regs changed, lazy gs handling made optional, add slight overhead to SAVE_ALL, simplifies error_code path a bit On x86_32, %gs hasn't been used by kernel and handled lazily. pt_regs doesn't have place for it and gs is saved/loaded only when necessary. In preparation for stack protector support, this patch makes lazy %gs handling optional by doing the followings. * Add CONFIG_X86_32_LAZY_GS and place for gs in pt_regs. * Save and restore %gs along with other registers in entry_32.S unless LAZY_GS. Note that this unfortunately adds "pushl $0" on SAVE_ALL even when LAZY_GS. However, it adds no overhead to common exit path and simplifies entry path with error code. * Define different user_gs accessors depending on LAZY_GS and add lazy_save_gs() and lazy_load_gs() which are noop if !LAZY_GS. The lazy_*_gs() ops are used to save, load and clear %gs lazily. * Define ELF_CORE_COPY_KERNEL_REGS() which always read %gs directly. xen and lguest changes need to be verified.
