x86: add a list for custom page fault handlers.



Provides kernel modules a way to register custom page fault handlers.
On every page fault this will call a list of registered functions. The
functions may handle the fault and force do_page_fault() to return
immediately.

This functionality is similar to the now removed page fault notifiers.
Custom page fault handlers are used by debugging and reverse engineering
tools. Mmiotrace is one such tool and a patch to add it into the tree
will follow.

The custom page fault handlers are called earlier in do_page_fault()
than the page fault notifiers were.

Allow the use of custom page fault handlers. A kernel module may
register a function that is called on every page fault. Custom
