x86, mm, perf: Allow recursive faults from interrupts
Waiman managed to trigger a PMI while in a emulate_vsyscall() fault, the PMI in turn managed to trigger a fault while obtaining a stack trace. This triggered the sig_on_uaccess_error recursive fault logic and killed the process dead. Fix this by explicitly excluding interrupts from the recursive fault logic.
