Bug Description

In Intel specifications (http://download.intel.com/design/processor/manuals/253668.pdf 7.3), we can see:

    8. Saves the state of the current (old) task in the current task’s TSS.

   12. The TSS state is loaded into the processor

But, in QEMU code (https://raw.github.com/qemu/QEMU/v1.0/target-i386/op_helper.c :375), the order is reversed: TSS registers & segments loads BEFORE save old task state.
