x86: make traps on entry code be debuggable in user space, 64-bit

Unify the x86-64 behavior for 32-bit processes that set
bogus %cs/%ss values (the only ones that can fault in iret)
match what the native i386 behavior is. (do not kill the task
via do_exit but generate a SIGSEGV signal)

* The iret traps when the %cs or %ss being restored is bogus.
* We've lost the original trap vector and error code.
* #GPF is the most likely one to get for an invalid selector.
* So pretend we completed the iret and took the #GPF in user mode.
* We are now running with the kernel GS after exception recovery.
* But error_entry expects us to have user GS to match the user %cs,
* so swap back.
