After the stack switch in error_entry(), the pt_regs are at a different
offset than before, so they aren't where ORC expects them to be.

I think the below patch should fix it, by popping the return address off
the stack instead of just copying it. This way we can avoid adding
another ORC annotation because pt_regs will be at the same offset both
before and after the sync_regs() call.
