    xen/pv: Construct d0v0's GDT properly
    c/s cf6d39f8199 "x86/PV: properly populate descriptor tables" changed the GDT
    to reference zero_page for intermediate frames between the guest and Xen
    Because dom0_construct_pv() doesn't call arch_set_info_guest(), some bits of
    initialisation are missed, including the pv_destroy_gdt() which initially
    fills the references to zero_page.
    In practice, this means there is a window between starting and the first call
    to HYPERCALL_set_gdt() were lar/lsl/verr/verw suffer non-architectural
