x86/fpu: Fault-in user stack if copy_fpstate_to_sigframe() fails

In the compacted form, XSAVES may save only the XMM+SSE state but skip
FP (x87 state).

This is denoted by header->xfeatures = 6. The fastpath
(copy_fpregs_to_sigframe()) does that but _also_ initialises the FP
state (cwd to 0x37f, mxcsr as we do, remaining fields to 0).

The slowpath (copy_xstate_to_user()) leaves most of the FP
state untouched. Only mxcsr and mxcsr_flags are set due to
xfeatures_mxcsr_quirk(). Now that XFEATURE_MASK_FP is set
unconditionally, see

  04944b79 ("x86: xsave: set FP, SSE bits in the xsave header in the user sigcontext"),

on return from the signal, random garbage is loaded as the FP state.

Instead of utilizing copy_xstate_to_user(), fault-in the user memory
and retry the fast path. Ideally, the fast path succeeds on the second
attempt but may be retried again if the memory is swapped out due
to memory pressure. If the user memory can not be faulted-in then
get_user_pages() returns an error so we don't loop forever.

Fault in memory via get_user_pages_unlocked() so
copy_fpregs_to_sigframe() succeeds without a fault.
