uprobes: Teach handle_swbp() to rely on "is_swbp" rather than uprobes_srcu

Currently handle_swbp() assumes that it can't race with
unregister, so it roughly does:

if (find_uprobe(vaddr))
process_uprobe();
else
send_sig(SIGTRAP);
This relies on the not-really-working uprobes_srcu code we are
going to remove, see the next patch.

With this patch we rely on the result of
is_swbp_at_addr(bp_vaddr) if find_uprobe() fails.

If is_swbp == 1, then we hit the normal int3, we should send
SIGTRAP.

If is_swbp == 0, we raced with uprobe_unregister(), we simply
restart this insn again.

The "difficult" case is is_swbp == -EFAULT, when we can't read
this memory. In this case I think we should restart too, and
this is more correct compared to the current code which sends
SIGTRAP.

Ignoring ENOMEM/etc from get_user_pages(), this can only happen
if another thread unmaps this memory before find_active_uprobe()
takes mmap_sem. It would be better to pretend it was unmapped
before this insn was executed, restart, and get SIGSEGV.
