x86: add %gs accessors for x86_32
Impact: cleanup On x86_32, %gs is handled lazily. It's not saved and restored on kernel entry/exit but only when necessary which usually is during task switch but there are few other places. Currently, it's done by calling savesegment() and loadsegment() explicitly. Define get_user_gs(), set_user_gs() and task_user_gs() and use them instead. While at it, clean up register access macros in signal.c. This cleans up code a bit and will help future changes. Signed-off-by: Tejun Heo <tj@kernel.org> Signed-off-by: Ingo Molnar <mingo@elte.hu>
