src/sys/arch/xen/i386 [netbsd-3]: gdt.c
Pull up revision 1.4 (requested by bouyer in ticket #73):
Merge 126.96.36.199 from yamt-km branch:
We can't write directly to a gdt slot, we need to go though
From YAMAMOTO Takashi: this is not a problem in HEAD, because
as the kva for gdt is pageable, when gdt_put_slot1 attempts to modify gdt,
the fault handler allocates and maps a new page for you.
So the kernel doesn't panic, but could leak some memory.
