Subject: [PATCH 04/43] x86/gdt: Put per-cpu GDT remaps in ascending order

From: Andy Lutomirski <luto@...nel.org>

We currently have CPU 0's GDT at the top of the GDT range and
higher-numbered CPUs at lower addresses.  This happens because the
fixmap is upside down (index 0 is the top of the fixmap).

Flip it so that GDTs are in ascending order by virtual address.
This will simplify a future patch that will generalize the GDT
remap to contain multiple pages.
