    x86: fix slow int80 path after XPTI additions
    For the int80 slow path to jump to handle_exception_saved, %r14 needs to
    be set up suitably for XPTI purposes. This is because of the difference
    in nature between the int80 path (which is synchronous WRT guest
    actions) and the exception path which is potentially asynchronous.
    This is XSA-259.
