Subject: [patch 01/14] x86/irq/64: Limit IST stack overflow check to #DB stack

37fe6a42b343 ("x86: Check stack overflow in detail") added a broad check
for the full exception stack area, i.e. it considers the full exception
stack are as valid.

That's wrong in two aspects:

 1) It does not check the individual areas one by one

 2) #DF, NMI and #MCE are not enabling interrupts which means that a
    regular device interrupt cannot happen in their context. In fact if a
    device interrupt hits one of those IST stacks that's a bug because some
    code path enabled interrupts while handling the exception.

Limit the check to the #DB stack and consider all other IST stacks as
'overflow' or invalid.
