x86, mm: fault.c, unify oops printing

Impact: refine/extend page fault related oops printing on 64-bit

 - honor the pause_on_oops logic on 64-bit too
 - print out NX fault warnings on 64-bit as well
 - factor out the NX fault message to make it git-greppable and readable

Note that this means that we do the PF_INSTR check on 32-bit non-PAE
as well where it should not occur ... normally. Cannot hurt.
