Please end function names with parentheses: get_seg_selector().

Good.

I'm wondering whether you really need that bool or you can deduce this
from pt_regs... I guess I'll see...

<--- error handling.

And that's not really a "seg_type" but simply the "sel"-ector. And that
"enum segment" is not really a segment but an segment override prefixes
enum. Can we please get the nomenclature right first?
