Subject[PATCH v7 01/18] x86/fsgsbase/64: Fix ARCH_SET_FS/GS behaviors for a remote task
Date
When a ptracer writes to a ptracee's FS/GSBASE with a different value,
the selector is also cleared. This behavior is not straightforward.

The change will make the behavior simple and sensible, as it will
(only) update the base when requested. Also, the condition check for
comparing the base is removed to make more simple. It might save a few
cycles, but this path is not performance critical.

The only recognizable downside of this change is when writing the base
if the selector is already nonzero. The base will be reloaded according
to the selector. But the case is highly unexpected in real usages.
