x86-64: Add user_64bit_mode paravirt op
Three places in the kernel assume that the only long mode CPL 3 selector is __USER_CS. This is not true on Xen -- Xen's sysretq changes cs to the magic value 0xe033. Two of the places are corner cases, but as of "x86-64: Improve vsyscall emulation CS and RIP handling" (c9712944b2a12373cb6ff8059afcfb7e826a6c54), vsyscalls will segfault if called with Xen's extra CS selector. This causes a panic when older init builds die. It seems impossible to make Xen use __USER_CS reliably without taking a performance hit on every system call, so this fixes the tests instead with a new paravirt op. It's a little ugly because ptrace.h can't include paravirt.h.
