Subject: [PATCH 2/3] x86,vdso: Make the PER_CPU segment start out accessed

The first userspace attempt to read or write the PER_CPU segment
will write the accessed bit to the GDT.  This is visible to
userspace using the LAR instruction.

Set the segment's accessed bit at boot to keep all userspace GDT
access idempotent.
