We were asserting that we were all the way in CONTEXT_KERNEL when
exception handlers were called.  While having this be true is, I
think, a nice goal (or maybe a variant in which we assert that we're
in CONTEXT_KERNEL or some new IRQ context), we're not quite there.

In particular, if an IRQ interrupts the SYSCALL prologue and the IRQ
handler in turn causes an exception, the exception entry will be
called in RCU IRQ mode but with CONTEXT_USER.

This is okay (nothing goes wrong), but until we fix up the SYSCALL
prologue, we need to avoid warning.
