I would do fixup_umip_exception(regs) == 0 to make it more obvious
what's going on.

Also, since you're allowing this in v8086 mode, I think this should
have an explicit test in
tools/testing/selftests/x86/entry_from_vm86.c.  I *think* it will work
fine, but the pt_regs handling in vm86 mode is quite scary and has
been rewritten recently.
