    x86: add %gs accessors for x86_32 · d9a89a26

    Impact: cleanup
    On x86_32, %gs is handled lazily.  It's not saved and restored on
    kernel entry/exit but only when necessary which usually is during task
    switch but there are few other places.  Currently, it's done by
    calling savesegment() and loadsegment() explicitly.  Define
    get_user_gs(), set_user_gs() and task_user_gs() and use them instead.
    While at it, clean up register access macros in signal.c.
    This cleans up code a bit and will help future changes.
