sched/preempt, futex: Update comments to clarify that preemption doesn't have to be disabled

As arm64 and arc have no special implementations for !CONFIG_SMP, mutual
exclusion doesn't seem to rely on preemption.

Let's make it clear in the comments that preemption doesn't have to be
disabled when accessing user space in the futex code, so we can remove
preempt_disable() from pagefault_disable().
