No, that won't be enough. We also need to customize those
MACHINE_THREAD_STATE_FLAVOR definitions to include the potential new
i386_FSGS_BASE_STATE that we were discussing recently [0].

I was just looking at this file yesterday and concluded the
abstraction cannot work as is for x86_64, because half of the time
it's used for indeed accessing registers like SP and PC, and other
times it's used to access TLS/TCB. So this needs to be two distinct
definitions, and all the users inside glibc have to be reworked.

So let's please not rush with moving this to x86/
