Changing FS/GS register is quite dangerous since you will crash if you call anything in (kernel/user/gdi)32 and FS/GS isn't the TIB *.
You're right! I have spent too long living in the x64 world and am forgetting the details of x86.
On x86 it is the ES: segment register that is 'unused'.
On x64, FS: is 'unused'. (GS: points to the TIB/TEB; and ES: (like CS: DS: & SS:) is 'forced to zero'.)

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
