Not true. current->thread.fsbase is almost entirely undefined in this
context. What you *could* do is export save_fsgs() and call it first.
When FSGSBASE support lands (which will happen eventually!), the code
in your patch will be completely wrong.
Admittedly, your patch isn't 100% bogus, but the reason is subtle and
you need lots of comments there *and* in save_fsgs().
