x86/fpu: Use fault_in_pages_writeable() for pre-faulting

Since commit

d9c9ce34ed5c8 ("x86/fpu: Fault-in user stack if copy_fpstate_to_sigframe() fails")

get_user_pages_unlocked() pre-faults user's memory if a write generates
a page fault while the handler is disabled.

This works in general and uncovered a bug as reported by Mike
Rapoport¹. It has been pointed out that this function may be fragile
and a simple pre-fault as in fault_in_pages_writeable() would be a
better solution. Better as in taste and simplicity: that write (as
performed by the alternative function) performs exactly the same
faulting of memory as before. This was suggested by Hugh Dickins and
Andrew Morton.

Use fault_in_pages_writeable() for pre-faulting user's stack.
