Subject: [RFC PATCH V2 3/7] x86/hw_breakpoint: Prevent data breakpoints on per_cpu cpu_tss_rw

cpu_tss_rw is not directly referenced by hardware, but
cpu_tss_rw is also used in CPU entry code, especially
when #DB shifts its stacks. If a data breakpoint is on
the cpu_tss_rw.x86_tss.ist[IST_INDEX_DB], it will cause
recursive #DB (and then #DF soon for #DB is generated
after the access, IST-shifting, is done).
