Subject: [PATCH 31/43] x86/mm/kaiser: Map entry stack variable

From: Dave Hansen <dave.hansen@...ux.intel.com>

There are times where the kernel is entered but there is no
safe stack, like at SYSCALL entry.  To obtain a safe stack, we
have to clobber %rsp and store the clobbered value in
'rsp_scratch'.

Map this to userspace to allow us to do this stack switch before
the CR3 switch.
