Hello

I know we don't enable PTI on AMD, but the above comment doesn't align to the
next code.

We assume PTI is enabled as the comments said "even with PTI enabled".

When #VC happens after entry_SYSCALL_64 but before it switches to the
kernel CR3. vc_switch_off_ist() will switch the stack to the kernel stack
and paranoid_exit can't work when it switches to user CR3 on the kernel stack.

The comment above lost information that the current stack is possible to be
the kernel stack which is mapped not user CR3.

Maybe I missed something.

Thanks
Lai
