I actually don't think SYS_DESC_ vs DESC_TYPE_ matters that much;
perhaps the former is slightly more precise. I wouldn't, however, want
the _gate suffixes be dropped, irrespective that there's no task gate
in x86-64 that could be confused with the TSS one - they are gate
descriptors, and hence they should be named that way.
