Subject[patch 09/14] x86/traps: Use cpu_entry_area instead of orig_ist
The orig_ist[] array is a shadow copy of the IST array in the TSS. The
reason why it exists is that older kernels used two TSS variants with
different pointers into the debug stack. orig_ist[] contains the real
starting points.

There is no point anymore to do so because the same information can be
retrieved using the base address of the cpu entry area mapping and the
offsets of the various exception stacks.

No functional change. Preparation for removing orig_ist.
