Right, so we have now two TSS thingies, AFAICT:

	tss = &per_cpu(cpu_tss, cpu);

which is cpu_tss and then indirectly, we have also:

	&get_cpu_entry_area((cpu))->tss

And those are two different things in my guest here:

[    0.044002] tss: 0xf5747000
[    0.044706] entry area tss: 0xffef1000

What is the logic here? We carry two TSSs per CPU - one which is RO
for the entry area and the other is the actual cpu_tss thing? Or am I
misreading it?

Thx.
