userfaultfd: non-cooperative: closing the uffd without triggering SIGBUS
This is an enhancement to avoid a non cooperative userfaultfd manager having to unregister all regions before it can close the uffd after all userfaultfd activity completed. The UFFDIO_UNREGISTER would serialize against the handle_userfault by taking the mmap_sem for writing, but we can simply repeat the page fault if we detect the uffd was closed and so the regular page fault paths should takeover.
