[PATCH v3 2/3] x86: Use static_cpu_has in uaccess region to avoid instrumentation




This patch is a pre-requisite for enabling KASAN bitops instrumentation;
using static_cpu_has instead of boot_cpu_has avoids instrumentation of
test_bit inside the uaccess region. With instrumentation, the KASAN
check would otherwise be flagged by objtool.

For consistency, kernel/signal.c was changed to mirror this change,
however, is never instrumented with KASAN (currently unsupported under
x86 32bit).

Changes in v3:
* Use static_cpu_has instead of moving boot_cpu_has outside uaccess
  region.

Changes in v2:
* Replaces patch: 'tools/objtool: add kasan_check_* to uaccess
  whitelist'
