Lazy TSS's I/O bitmap update patch implements a lazy TSS's I/O bitmap copy for the i386 and x86-64 architecture. Instead of copying the bitmap at every context switch, the TSS's I/O bitmap offset is set to an invalid offset, so that an attempt to access the bitmap from the CPU will trigger a GP fault.

It is lazily at that stage that the bitmap is updated, by hence avoiding bitmap copies in cases where the switched task do not perfom any I/O operation.
