x86/asm: Enable fast 32-bit put_user_64() for copy_to_user()

For fixed sized copies, copy_to_user() will utilize
__put_user_size() fastpaths. However, it is missing the
translation for 64-bit copies on x86/32.

Testing on a Pinetrail Atom, the 64 bit put_user() fastpath
is substantially faster than the generic copy_to_user()
fallback.
