Subject[PATCH v1 15/15] uaccess: decouple preemption from the pagefault logic
Date
As the fault handlers now all rely on the pagefault_disabled() checks
and implicit preempt_disable() calls by pagefault_disable() have been
made explicit, we can completely rely on the pagefault_disableD counter.

So let's no longer touch the preempt count when disabling/enabling
pagefaults. After a call to pagefault_disable(), pagefault_disabled()
will return true, but in_atomic() won't.
