x86/entry/32: Change INT80 to be an interrupt gate

We want all of the syscall entries to run with interrupts off so that
we can efficiently run context tracking before enabling interrupts.

This will regress int $0x80 performance on 32-bit kernels by a
couple of cycles.  This shouldn't matter much -- int $0x80 is not a
fast path.

This effectively reverts:

  657c1eea ("x86/entry/32: Fix entry_INT80_32() to expect interrupts to be on")

... and fixes the same issue differently.
