We appear to have lost all of our global bits between this and the
cpu_entry_area itself. To make K8 happy, shouldn't we just *set*
_PAGE_GLOBAL universally instead of clearing it universally?
Also, don't we want _PAGE_GLOBAL in the cpu_entry_area.c pte setting? I
think I had this for all the shared user/kernel areas near the end of
the KAISER era, but we appear to have totally nuked it for PTI.
