uml: don't allow processes to call into stub

Kill a process that tries to branch into a stub and execute a system
call.  There are no security implications here - a system call in a
stub is treated the same as a system call anywhere else.  But if a
process is trying to branch into a stub, either it is trying something
nasty or it has gone haywire, so it's a good idea to get rid of it in
either case.
