[PATCH 11/39] x86/entry/32: Simplify debug entry point




From: Joerg Roedel <jroedel@xxxxxxx>

The common exception entry code now handles the
entry-from-sysenter stack situation and makes sure to leave
with the same stack as it entered the kernel.

So there is no need anymore for the special handling in the
debug entry code.
