Introduce [compat_]save_altstack_ex() to unbreak x86 SMAP
For performance reasons, when SMAP is in use, SMAP is left open for an entire put_user_try { ... } put_user_catch(); block, however, calling __put_user() in the middle of that block will close SMAP as the STAC..CLAC constructs intentionally do not nest. Furthermore, using __put_user() rather than put_user_ex() here is bad for performance. Thus, introduce new [compat_]save_altstack_ex() helpers that replace __[compat_]save_altstack() for x86, being currently the only architecture which supports put_user_try { ... } put_user_catch().
