Ok, so I think this is what Andy meant last night and PeterZ just
suggested it too:

We do a:

_ASM_EXTABLE_HANDLE(1b, 2b, ex_handler_panic)

which panics straight in the #GP handler and avoids the IRET.

I mean, we want to panic there because architectural violation and we
won't have to deal with the IRET...

Hohumm, sounds like the right thing to do in the face of the brokenness
of this magnificent architecture.</maxed out sarcasm>.
