I'm surely missing something subtle, but the register saving does really
not care on which GS it is. This swapgs orgy looks odd.

That took several attempts to grok why you left ALLOC_PT_GPRES_ON_STACK in
place in the interrupts macro above.

In theory it would be sufficient to push %rdi on the entry stack and
operate from there, but it spares only the 'addq %rsp'. Not worth the
trouble of dealing with different register offsets.

A comment to that effect would be useful if you look at that 3 month from
now.
