Subject: [PATCH AUTOSEL 5.4 066/130] selftests/x86/fsgsbase: Fix GS == 1, 2, and 3 tests

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

[ Upstream commit 716572b0003ef67a4889bd7d85baf5099c5a0248 ]

Setting GS to 1, 2, or 3 causes a nonsensical part of the IRET microcode
to change GS back to zero on a return from kernel mode to user mode. The
result is that these tests fail randomly depending on when interrupts
happen. Detect when this happens and let the test pass.
