enable interrupts in user path of page fault.
This is a minor fix, but what is currently there is essentially wrong. In do_page_fault, if the faulting address from user code happens to be in kernel address space (int *p = (int*)-1; p = 0xbed;) then the do_page_fault handler will jump over the local_irq_enable with the goto bad_area_nosemaphore; But the first line there sees this is user code and goes through the process of sending a signal to send SIGSEGV to the user task. This whole time interrupts are disabled and the task can not be preempted by a higher priority task. This patch always enables interrupts in the user path of the bad_area_nosemaphore.
