Subject: [PATCH v3 3/4] uaccess: Check no rescheduling function is called in unsafe region

While running a user_access regions, it is not supported to reschedule.
Add an overridable primitive to indicate whether a user_access region is
active and check that this is not the case when calling rescheduling
functions.

These checks are only performed when DEBUG_UACCESS_SLEEP is selected.

Also, add a comment clarifying the behaviour of user_access regions.
