Subject: [PATCH] [RFC] aarch64: scs: reload shadow call stack in user exception entry

When el0 exception occurs, kernel_entry/exit will load/save tsk->scs_sp
to ensure scs working properly. AFAIK, the SCS offset should always be
0 at this time.

Is it reasonable to reload x18 to scs_base directly in kernel_entry
here, or am I missing something?
