Of course I had to forgot one thing:

	Note that the fsyscall-support also changes the meaning of
	ar.k6: it used to contain the physical address of the
	"current" task pointer.  Now, it contains the (kernel) virtual
	address instead.  This is a small performance optimization, we
	we run in virtual mode almost all the time, nowadays.
