x86, gdt, hibernate: Store/load GDT for hibernate path.
The git commite7a5cd06 ("x86-64, gdt: Store/load GDT for ACPI S3 or hibernate/resume path is not needed.") assumes that for the hibernate path the booting kernel and the resuming kernel MUST be the same. That is certainly the case for a 32-bit kernel (see check_image_kernel and CONFIG_ARCH_HIBERNATION_HEADER config option). However for 64-bit kernels it is OK to have a different kernel version (and size of the image) of the booting and resuming kernels. Hence the above mentioned git commit introduces an regression. This patch fixes it by introducing a 'struct desc_ptr gdt_desc' back in the 'struct saved_context'. However instead of having in the 'save_processor_state' and 'restore_processor_state' the store/load_gdt calls, we are only saving the GDT in the save_processor_state. For the restore path the lgdt operation is done in hibernate_asm_[32|64].S in the 'restore_registers' path. The apt reader of this description will recognize that only 64-bit kernels need this treatment, not 32-bit. This patch adds the logic in the 32-bit path to be more similar to 64-bit so that in the future the unification process can take advantage of this.
