[ARM] 4183/1: do_undefinstr: read svc undefined instructions with svc privileges

do_undefinstr currently does not expect undefined instructions in kernel
code, since it always uses get_user() to read the instruction.

Dereference the 'pc' pointer directly in the SVC case.

Per Nicolas Pitre's note, kernel code is never in thumb mode.
