kprobes/x86: Remove IRQ disabling from ftrace-based/optimized kprobes

Kkprobes don't need to disable IRQs if they are called from the
ftrace/jump trampoline code, because Documentation/kprobes.txt says:

-----
Probe handlers are run with preemption disabled. Depending on the
architecture and optimization state, handlers may also run with
interrupts disabled (e.g., kretprobe handlers and optimized kprobe
handlers run without interrupt disabled on x86/x86-64).
-----

So let's remove IRQ disabling from those handlers.
