Subject[patch 4/7] x86: finish user fault error path with fatal signal
Date
The x86 fault handler bails in the middle of error handling when the
task has a fatal signal pending. For a subsequent patch this is a
problem in OOM situations because it relies on
pagefault_out_of_memory() being called even when the task has been
killed, to perform proper per-task OOM state unwinding.

Shortcutting the fault like this is a rather minor optimization that
saves a few instructions in rare cases. Just remove it for
user-triggered faults.

Use the opportunity to split the fault retry handling from actual
fault errors and add locking documentation that reads suprisingly
similar to ARM's.
