I don't see anything here which updates the fields in the TSS across
context switch.  Without it, you'll be taking NMIs/MCEs/DF's on the
wrong stack.

I still don't see how your plan is viable in the first place, and is
adding substantially more complexity to an answer which doesn't need it.

I'm afraid I'm on the verge of a nack unless you can explain how is
intended to be safe, and better than what we currently have.
