The protection-key feature provides an additional mechanism by which IA-32e
paging controls access to usermode addresses.

Hardware support for protection keys for user pages is enumerated with CPUID
feature flag CPUID.7.0.ECX[3]:PKU. Software support is CPUID.7.0.ECX[4]:OSPKE
with the setting of CR4.PKE(bit 22).

The PKRU register is XSAVE-managed state CPUID.D.0.EAX[9], the size of XSAVE
state component for PKRU is 8 bytes, the offset is 0xa80.

The specification of Protection Keys can be found at SDM (4.6.2, volume 3)
