To close out this part of the thread. Linux doesn't call __switch_to_xtra()
in this case because I didn't ask it to. There are separate masks to check
TIF bits for the previous and next tasks in a context switch. I'd only set the
_TIF_SLD bit in the mask for the previous task.

See the v17 I posted a few hours before this message for the fix.
