Subject: [PATCH v2] x86/fpu: XRSTOR is expected to raise #GP

commit 75045f77f7a7 ("x86/extable: Introduce _ASM_EXTABLE_UA for uaccess
fixups") incorrectly replaced the fixup entry for XSTATE_OP with a
user-#PF-only fixup. XRSTOR can also raise #GP if the xstate content is
invalid, and _ASM_EXTABLE_UA doesn't expect that.
Change this fixup back to _ASM_EXTABLE so that #GP gets fixed up.
