x86: Fix broken LDT access in VMI
commit de59985e3a623d4d5d6207f1777398ca0606ab1c upstream After investigating a JRE failure, I found this bug was introduced a long time ago, and had already managed to survive another bugfix which occurred on the same line. The result is a total failure of the JRE due to LDT selectors not working properly. This one took a long time to rear up because LDT usage is not very common, but the bug is quite serious. It got introduced along with another bug, already fixed, by 75b8bb3e56ca09a467fbbe5229bc68627f7445be Signed-off-by: Zachary Amsden <zach@vmware.com> Cc: Ingo Molnar <mingo@redhat.com> Cc: Glauber de Oliveira Costa <gcosta@redhat.com> Signed-off-by: Linus Torvalds <torvalds@linux-foundation.org> Signed-off-by: Greg Kroah-Hartman <gregkh@suse.de>
