Subject: [PATCH] x86/dumpstack: fix address space casting in show_opcodes()

I sloppily passed a kernel-typed pointer to __range_not_ok(), and sparse
doesn't like that.
Make `prologue` a __user pointer (to protect against accidental
dereferences) and force-cast it to a kernel pointer when calling
probe_kernel_read(), which will then immediately force-cast it back to a
user pointer.

Fixes: a644cf538b11 ("x86/dumpstack: Don't dump kernel memory based on usermode RIP")
