x86/entry: Rename is_{ia32,x32}_task() to in_{ia32,x32}_syscall()

The is_ia32_task()/is_x32_task() function names are a big misnomer: they
suggests that the compat-ness of a system call is a task property, which
is not true, the compatness of a system call purely depends on how it
was invoked through the system call layer.

A task may call 32-bit and 64-bit and x32 system calls without changing
any of its kernel visible state.

This specific minomer is also actively dangerous, as it might cause kernel
developers to use the wrong kind of security checks within system calls.

So rename it to in_{ia32,x32}_syscall().
