perf: Move task_pt_regs sampling into arch code
On x86_64, at least, task_pt_regs may be only partially initialized in many contexts, so x86_64 should not use it without extra care from interrupt context, let alone NMI context. This will allow x86_64 to override the logic and will supply some scratch space to use to make a cleaner copy of user regs.
