Subject[PATCH v2] x86/entry/32: Fix setup of CS high bits
From
Date
Even if we are not on an entry stack, we have to initialize the CS high
bits because we are unconditionally evaluating them
PARANOID_EXIT_TO_KERNEL_MODE. Failing to do so broke the boot on Galileo
Gen2 and IOT2000 boards.

Fixes: b92a165df17e ("x86/entry/32: Handle Entry from Kernel-Mode on Entry-Stack")

Changes in v2:
- adjust comment according to Andy's feedback
- added Jörg's ack/review (assuming the comment change does not affect it)
