I'd guess an extra 'swapgs' has been done.

The code changes aren't that simple.
IIRC the order the registers got saved and restored changed, possibly
the entire stack frame layout.
I had to change -5 to load the segment registers just before the iret,
-4 probably contains the even earlier version of those structure.
(cvsweb@ is down - can't check sources).
