Hi Qiaowei,

Does this mean that if userspace decided to map something in the way of
the bounds tables that it would break MPX?

Also, in the description, could we s/linear/virtual/? Linear seems to
be the term that Intel likes to use in its documents, but we almost
universally call them virtual addresses in the kernel.
