    [PATCH] uml: arch_prctl should set thread fs
    In my previous x86_64 thread fix, I forgot to initialize thread.arch.fs in
    arch_prctl.  A process calling arch_prctl to set %fs would lose it on the
    next context switch.
    It also turns out that you can switch to a process which is in the process
    of exiting and which has lost its mm.  In this case, it's worse than
    useless to try to call arch_prctl on the host process.
