This patchset applies on top of the two other tip/pti-related patches
I sent out moments ago,[*] and try to implement what Linus suggested a
few days ago[+].


Overall, these patches provide for a sizeable cutting of up to 4.35k:

   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
  20987       0       0   20987    51fb entry_64.o-orig
  16621       0       0   16621    40ed entry_64.o

They are split up in four small steps to easen the review. Another
advantage is that we can decide whether each additional step is really
worth it in relation to an increase in code complexity.

NOTE / WARNING: As usual, please be extremely stringent in reviewing these
