I retract said patch--after understanding more of what i knew about
TF_kernel_mode, and looking into the syscall problem, it seems clear
that the problem is that TF_kernel_mode isn't set.

So now the question is, why is TF_kernel_mode is getting cleared by
arch_set_info_guest()? (or why isn't VGCF_IN_KERNEL set?)
