[RFC PATCH 2/4] x86/fault: Attempt to fixup unhandled #PF in vDSO before signaling

Call fixup_vdso_exception() in the SIGSEGV and SIGBUS paths to attempt
to fixup page faults in vDSO.  This allows vDSO functions to utilize
exception fixup to report unhandled page faults directly to userspace
for specific flows in lieu of generating a signal.

In the SIGSEGV flow, make sure to call fixup_vdso_exception() after
the error code has been sanitized.
