This can't be right.

At the very least, now the comment is wrong. And the comment does seem
relevant for 32-bit too:

Notice? You've moved down the 32-bit fix_processor_context() call to
after the loadsegment() calls, which smells wrong.

That said, this *all* smells wrong. Why is there a special
fix_processor_context() function at all with different 32-bit and
64-bit behavior? This code is all written to be maximally confusing.

I think this could do with some re-org to make it more logical. That
"some random things done in fix_processor_context(), other random
things done directly in __restore_processor_state()" makes no sense at
all to me. There's no logic to what is done where.
