Subject: [PATCH v2 7/7] x86/boot: Micro-optimize GDT loading instructions
Date: Sun,  2 Feb 2020 12:13:53 -0500
Message-ID: <20200202171353.3736319-8-nivedita@alum.mit.edu> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200202171353.3736319-1-nivedita@alum.mit.edu>

Rearrange the instructions a bit to use a 32-bit displacement once
instead of 2/3 times. This saves 8 bytes of machine code.
