Do some fields after the cpumask need to line up in both structures? Placing
a dummy cpumask in the shadow_page structure might make most sense.

For the other one I'll have to think a bit. The need for GDT entries per CPU
currently obviously means scaling much past a few hundred CPUs is going to
be difficult.
