Subject: [PATCH 17/18] x86/asm/64: Remove thread_struct::sp0

On x86_64, we can easily calculate sp0 when needed instead of
storing it in thread_struct.

On x86_32, a similar cleanup would be possible, but it would require
cleaning up the vm86 code first, and that can wait for a later
cleanup series.
