I didn't update the io bitmap offset at all task switches.  I only covered
stack_handoff and not switch_context.  I don't really understand what each
is used for, but it's quite obvious that it is needed in both and testing
verified the following change:

        * i386/i386/pcb.c (switch_context): Update the I/O permission
        bitmap from stack_handoff() here (not only in stack_handoff()).
