x86/nmi: Fix NMI uaccess race against CR3 switching

A NMI can hit in the middle of context switching or in the middle of
switch_mm_irqs_off().  In either case, CR3 might not match current->mm,
which could cause copy_from_user_nmi() and friends to read the wrong
memory.

Fix it by adding a new nmi_uaccess_okay() helper and checking it in
copy_from_user_nmi() and in __copy_from_user_nmi()'s callers.
